Another rainbow

I posted a picture of a rainbow over my back garden about nine months ago, which you can see by clicking on the label.  I've just watched another one, same place, shape, colours.  But this one disappeared as I watched it.  It didn't just vanish - it flickered out.  It was there, then it wasn't ...  then it was again.  Then it wasn't.  It didn't give up easily.  It took it what seemed like a very long time to yield, as the sun finally descended behind the rooftops to the West.

  3. Well, every time I thought I'd spotted the ends of it, they kept disappearing. And I couldn't fly over it, even on the wings of a dove. Or a pigeon.

  4. I see the voice of Zippy died recently. A memorial rainbow, perhaps?

  5. Christopher, the depth of your cultural knowledge leaves me breathless.
