Find your pot of gold and celebrate a Monkey’s wedding!

Somewhere over the rainbow …. I took this image a couple of days ago from the Park when sunshine and showers showcased over the Solent …… having spent so many years of my life in South Africa I always think of a sunshower (and resultant rainbow) as a “Monkey’s Wedding”.

In South African English, a sunshower is referred to as a "monkey’s wedding", translated from the Zulu umshado wezinkawu, a wedding for monkeys. In Afrikaans it is referred to as jakkalstrou (Jackal’s wedding) or Jakkals trou met wolf se vrou as dit reën en die son skyn flou ("The Jackal marries the Wolf’s wife when it rains and the sun shines faintly").

Leprechaun & rainbow

Legend has it that the Irish leprechaun's secret hiding place for his pot of gold is at the end of the rainbow.

All the Team at Seaview Wildlife hope you (our friends and fellow Bloggers) discover your own pot of gold at the end of the rainbow…… in whatever form it needs to be to bring you a special Christmas time …… and most of all to enrich the year ahead with good health, happiness and love.
