I feel kind of silly posting these photos because my camera never in a zillion years could do justice what we saw this evening but alas, here they are. After a week of record heat, (Monday was the hottest day in Los Angeles' history) tonight's brief thunderstorm brought with it a double rainbow that lasted almost an hour. My Nana* was in town, passing through Los Angeles for dinner after taking a trip up north to say goodbye to a friend of hers who's very sick and soon to pass.
Nana had just arrived when the rainbow showed and the two of us stood outside the house for the entire hour it lasted, watching the rainbows fade in, then out, disappearing one and then the other as all things must do.
Life is a poem.
*Nana wrote a spectacular guest post about child-friendly gardening that I'll be posting here tomorrow. Stay tuned.
