what is the meaning of shepherd's red?
I presume it refers to the well-known saying:
"Red sky at night, shepherd's delight.
Red sky in the morning, sailor's warning."
There is apparently some scientific truth to this old saying. If the sunset is red at night, the next day will be clear of rain. On the other hand, if the sunrise is red in the morning, there will be storms.
