Richard Of York Gave Battle In Vain

As my dog Penne and I took our second walk this morning it began to rain.

The rain was half-way between “drizzle” and gentle rain.  It’s what I call “warm rain” – the sort that happens every now and then here in South West Florida.  

We walked on.  We were rewarded by the lovely sight of a double rainbow.  (The photo’ below is “from the web” -  it’s not mine as I did not have a camera with me as Penne and I walked).

My mind went back to some school teacher or other - (Mr. Richards or Mr. Parrot) – who taught us a mnemonic for the colours of the rainbow.

Red - Orange - Yellow - Green - Blue - Indigo – Violet

Penne with her nose to the ground missed the whole thing!
