The cows and the rainbow
It's been so dry for so long, can you notice in the photo how little grass is in the paddock? The stock are in good condition and still producing well but only because of the supplementary feed they have been getting.
The sky was a leaden grey and it looked like it could rain at any minute. Then the rainbow appeared. Setting in the trees just behind the cows. So close!
After taking the photo I returned to my preparing my dinner. But when I carried it to the dining room table and looked out, it was nearly dark but the sky was clear.
The rain clouds had blown away.
One thing I know for sure. Each day brings us closer to the day the skies will open and it will rain! I yearn for that lovely earthy smell of rain falling on dry earth. It will happen!
