The joy is in the diamonds

Thursday, September 12, 2013

This is the first of two posts today. Later I'm walking 5k as a virtual partner to my Spark Buddy and fellow Team Leader IMLOCOLINDA
and I'll let you know how I got on with that, but I had such a lovely start to the day I wanted to share it with you

It rained last night. Heavily. I could hear it through my dreams as it splashed in the puddles. They were still evident this morning, but the heavy rain had changed into a very fine 'mizzle', that's more a mist than a drizzle. It was dull and overcast, but the garden was a delight.

Droplets lay glistening on leaves and branches

Secret hiding places were festooned with glitter

Little faces were turned towards the light with sparkling acceptance

The flowers of fall offering glowing colour.

Diamonds everywhere. What a joy to behold.

I hope you find your diamonds today - wherever they might be. Onwards and Upwards.

    Yay! Finding beauty in the rain! We need it, after all, to make the flowers we love so much grow.

    Oh how I loved your pictures today!! And I could have written your pansy caption as I always think of them as little smiling faces looking up toward God! How beautiful your spider web. The old poem "a million tiny diamonds twinkled in the snow" has nothing on your million tiny diamonds twinkling in the dew! and I love the word "mizzle". Will have to add it to my vocab!

Have a great 5K. I did. Will blog about it in a bit.
Thanks for being a Pal of my Heart and for all the support and inspiration! You're my best bud!!
