April 18, 2010


Late for barn chores this misty morning, I quickly made my way through part of the garden and relished in the greening and awakening of the earth. 

  The plants were wet with raindrops glistening in the light. 
  The patterns and textures . . .  such a joy to behold.
  Nature IS quite magnificent!

Sedum -Autumn Joy
Monarda- Bee Balm
Strawberry plants
Lambs Ear

And there was always a surprise or two
and not knowing exactly what they were but trusting the bumblebees knew as they visited from plant to plant.

Another short stroll took me down by the pond . . . as always
where the daffodils and narcissus are still in bloom

and violets covered the ground nearby

Adopt the pace of nature:  her secret is patience. 
~Ralph Waldo Emerson

Isn't the world lovely after a rain? I especially love lupine leaves after rainfall; they look like stars holding a precious drop of silver dew. Thank you for sharing such beautiful images!
