I don't remember having so many days of rain in December. While those of us with "livestock" are getting very tired of mud in the paddocks, we are also delighted that our beautiful California hills have turned green once again. Yesterday seemed to be a chilly day with no chance of rain, but suddenly the temperature dropped about 10 degrees mid-afternoon and the sky opened up again. I was inside watching some silly Hallmark movie and staying warm, but fortunately Erik took the dogs out for a romp and got my attention by saying, "Honey, we have a rainbow."
Well, I can put on my new Bogs, grab my camera, and be outside in a flash when duty calls. Dang, it was COLD! I had to go back in once or twice to add a warm hat and another layer. The late afternoon light was so beautiful and just lit the hills with gorgeous greens. I didn't edit the colors in these photos. And I couldn't capture the whole rainbow because it was too big. It is always so rewarding to see nature's glory after so many days of dreary wet weather. Fabulous! Thank you, Mother Nature.
