Water Jewels in the Garden.....
The garden has many different looks... and this is one of my favorites. It is the look of the garden with sparkling jewel-like water droplets. It is a little thing... yet, it is a completely different look.
The colors seem fresher... and more intense....
I love how these droplets sit on the leaf and hold their shape...
Depending on the light, there can be a sparkly look to the drops.
A row of drops.... and then other jewels also.
This is from spring... they are crocus...... all of the other pictures are from this week.
Such a variety of colors and textures... and even the drops look a bit different... as some of them are very rounded and others are flatter.
This is from the hood of our Suburban. Actually, it was on the driveway... not IN the garden. Still, it looked interesting. :)
It is a good thing to find beauty in water droplets.... especially since we have had so much rain... and we are getting more right now. We have been in a drought for the last few years... and yet, we have gotten so much rain this spring. Surprisingly, the ground dries out pretty fast, which makes me wonder if maybe we are still feeling effects from the drought even with all of the rain.
I hear people saying they wish the rain would STOP and they are praying it will... and I caution that we should pray that it slows down, but not stop..... we have experience with when the rain "stops" and it is not the good thing people seem to think it will be. If the rain stops, I will look for things to be thankful for then also...... For now, I will enjoy the lush green growth from all of the rain, the seldom-seen sunshine... and those pretty water droplets. :)
