We spent much of Monday at the farm weeding garlic then attending to some other things that needed to be done. We witnessed a couple of things we had never seen before and I was able to get pictures of them.
In the morning as I was heading to the garlic bed to begin weeding I looked toward the pond and noticed this visitor.
It is a White Heron or Great Egret who apparently stopped by for a snack of tadpoles. My husband had told me he saw it the day before but previous to that we had never seen a White Heron on the farm. We have seen Blue Herons and it seems as if the bird I posted about here https://donteatitsoap.com/2017/05/16/bird-identification/ is a Green Heron. We are happy that our farm is host or home to so many of God’s creatures.
In the afternoon and evening we had some light rain showers come through. As the last round of showers moved out I looked to the sky and saw a beautiful rainbow.
I grabbed my camera and started taking pictures. I then got my husband who was cutting grass. Look at the rainbow I told him. At times we could see the entire rainbow but sometimes the middle was covered with clouds. My pictures really do not do it justice. I could not even fit the whole rainbow in one shot. I told my husband that I don’t remember ever seeing both ends of a rainbow before and he said he didn’t ever remember seeing that either.
Maybe since we have had so much rain this year and we having been praying so much for dry weather this was our message from God.
12 And God said, “This is the sign of the covenant that I make between me and you and every living creature that is with you, for all future generations: 13 I have set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be a sign of the covenant between me and the earth. 14 When I bring clouds over the earth and the bow is seen in the clouds, 15 I will remember my covenant that is between me and you and every living creature of all flesh. And the waters shall never again become a flood to destroy all flesh.

I should have read this post before the “Bird Identification” post, but I’m glad you found out what that mysterious bird was. I’ll have to study this bird in my Field Guide to Birds. Being avid ornithologists, we have several.
And this one looks so nice as you’ve captured it in its natural state. We only have blue herons here — and rarely at that. But the sloughs and lakes all over Saskatchewan are the breeding grounds for so many other waterfowl I dare not complain. 🙂

Beautiful pictures! I love the one with the heron.
Fingers crossed for you for some drier weather!
Thanks Christine. The heron surprised me that morning. I was happy I had my camera with me. Have a great day! 🙂
