What a lovely spell of weather we've had for the past month or so! This rainbow seems to be highlighting that the trees are beginning to turn as Wamphray moves into autumn.
see here. It is only an annual, but spreads rapidly. Each plant produces lots of seeds which are dispersed widely. I found this out by accident one day as I was 'attacked' by the plant. The ripe seedpods can shoot their seeds many yards away. I disturbed a clump by the riverside and was peppered by seeds being fired off. One of life's experiences!
