Sunday Selections #138

It's time for Sunday Selections!
This is a weekly meme started by Kim of FrogPondsRock as a way to showcase some of the many photos we all take, but don't get around to showing on our blogs. Sunday Selections is now hosted by River at Drifting Through Life.

The rules are very simple:-
1. post photos of your choice, old or new, under the Sunday Selections title
2. link back to River somewhere in your post
3. leave a comment on River's post and visit some of the others who have posted and commented

This week, I've got a few snaps taken during and after rain.  We've had good weather this spring in Melbourne, interspersed with lots of good rain.

This was a really magnificent rainbow last week, the thickest and brightest I've ever seen. You can't tell that from this shot, of course.  I was driving the kids to Greek school in Glen Waverley and there was a HUGE but short-lived downpour, after which a double rainbow (for a few seconds a triple one) lit up the afternoon sky:

This one was taken near my kids' school - a beautiful tree in someone's front yard, with stormy sky as backdrop:

This one was taken in the city during a sudden downpour (while stopped at a light):

And another magnificent rainbow - the second in less than two weeks. This one is from this last Thursday - I stood at the window by my old seat at work to get this.

Meanwhile, back home, there have been lots of these guys:

I was going to do a whole 'snails on sticks' thing, after I came back from walking the dog one morning  and noticed heaps of snails on sticks of all sorts all round the garden. But snails are deceptive. They seem slow but they move steadily, and by the time I came back with my phone a minute later, all but this guy had moved off their sticks.


  1. Lucky you....I can't remember the last time I saw a rainbow. Lots of snails though.

    1. I'm quite fond of snails, probably because I don't have a beautiful garden to worry about.

  2. LOVE the rainbows. A Polish woman I worked with told me that her children had never seen a rainbow until they came to Australia, because there was too much pollution near her home. Which horrified me.

    1. Wow, that's quite shocking. Rainbows are one of those things that make everything a bit better.
