Shots from the garden

I venture out many mid-summer evenings with a book tucked tightly under my arm, and a cold drink in my hand, to the chair that awaits me in the side garden after a long but rewarding day at the nursery. Last night was one of those magical evenings, when I wished with all my heart that others were there to share it with me. Because I was alone, I lingered awhile in my thoughts before I just HAD to get up and walk into the house, grab the Nikon, and head back out to the patio to try and capture the moment..... if only for me.

The evenings around Fallon are filled with beauty that others don't always get to see. The sunsets...of course...because after all we are in the desert, and second only to the ocean sunsets are the desert beauties. But the true marvels are the rare times when we have CLOUDS! Lots of billowy white puffy things, filled with the possibility of a little bit of moisture and the feel of fresh sheets on a summer day hanging on the line. This was such an evening. And to top it all .......... a RAINBOW! Something I took for granted on 200 out of 365 days in another world...a long time ago, a rainbow...........ahhhhhhhh!
