Today was a typical spring day in Oregon. For a good part of the day, the skies alternated between patchy clouds and dark gray clouds followed by some of the strongest downpours we’ve seen lately. As we drove the girls home today from their various commitments, a gorgeous rainbow led us home. It was one of the most vibrant rainbows we have seen for a very long time. This picture does not do it justice at all, but it was striking.
At times it was a double rainbow. The girls in the van even looked up from their phones and other electronics long enough to exclaim in wonder at the beauty of this rainbow.
Then, as we entered our house, the first thing we saw out of our back deck window was these 3 deer, enjoying the lush green grass in our pasture. They stayed for quite a while, and we watched until they finally wandered out of sight behind the trees. It was a lovely ending to our evening.
