After the Rain – Rainbows

Wow, pure awesomeness.  After the rain, rainbows, two of them, maybe three?  Out to dinner and we look out of our restaurant window and lo and behold the rainbows had lit up the sky…totally beautiful.  I shot a quick shot with my handy-dandy iPhone and Camera Awesome* app for this cute shot.  The light pole in the middle of the image made an interesting contrast to the trees and rainbows.  So my friends, there is always light and rainbows after the rain and at the end of the day!

FYI: I love the textures and presets in the Camera Awesome* app for quick, fun and funky photos. I also use the “100 Cameras in One” and “Instagram apps.

Oh Roses…Before and After

“I KNOW a little garden-close
Set thick with lily and red rose,
Where I would wander if I might
From dewy dawn to dewy night,
And have one with me wandering…”*

The Fountain Rose Garden “before and after” the rain. The sun is shining bright and early this morning so this garden will be restored to its proper glory and new blooms after the gardener’s loving touch.

Promise Gardens Rainy Day #2

A GARDEN is a lovesome thing, God wot!
Rose plot,
Fringed pool,
Ferned grot—
The veriest school
Of peace; and yet the fool
Contends that God is not—
Not God! in gardens! when the eve is cool?
Nay, but I have a sign;
’Tis very sure God walks in mine.**

Oh Beautiful Burning Bush

This week really begins the Thanksgiving and Christmas season at our house.  The Christmas tree goes up the day after Thanksgiving, the house is decked out and the gardens get their winter-dress up, wreaths on the doors, poinsettias on staircase, lights in the windows and the promise of a beautiful and lovely season of color.  As I gazed from my winter porch at the burning bush in the Promise Gardens, I noted the color that must be replicated for the holiday season as perfect “cherry” and “Christmassy” feature color so snapped a photo of it with my Camera Awesome and iPhone.  It will share a place with glittery gold. Isn’t it just lovely color?  We think so!
