Pink Sky and Rainbow

This is my 650th post on this blog.

I awoke before six this morning and went out to get the paper. Much of the sky was pink, and the sunrise over Smith Mountain was glorious.

But I noticed something else in the sky—a rainbow.

The other end soon appeared.

I don't think the two bulls near the fence across the road noticed, though. (Several bulls are actually in this field. I can't believe they get along together, but they do. The "panda-faced" bull to the right is my favorite. Every morning he calls to his cows and leads them to a grazing spot. He was humming when I took this picture. After he hums for a while, he starts bellowing.)

Red sky at morning,
Sailors take warning.
Red sky at night,
Sailors' delight.

So, what does a pink sky with a rainbow mean?

A pink sky with a rainbow means that all is right with the world and ... it might rain a little later.

The only thing missing is the gumdrops falling from the sky...nice shots.
