Water drop jewels

Just outside the window a neglected planter stands with euphorbia weed, thin leaflets of crocosmia and a small self seeded Aquilegia – all fresh growth as if it is Spring, not Autumn. It has been raining, then there was a brief splash of sunshine and each water droplet became a mirrored bead on the Aquilegia. Underneath the leaf a tiny tear drop.

and on the hebe, layered collections of jewels

and a simple dropped leaf lies on the wall, glistening

And now, I really must get on

No time to lose. No, time to lose. Make time to stand and stare.... Did you see that?

  1. Lovely detail, Nym.

    It didn’t rain here today, but it’s been chilly and grey for most of the day. I did go into the garden yesterday but it’s covered in leaves. Thanks to my wonderful gardener and a leaf blower, the lawn is now clear(ish) and I’m not worried about the borders.

  2. my borders can wait now, until Spring! (Shows I’m not a real gardener) Cycloman mowed the grass so that got the leaves up….

  3. Nope, it’s much the best way to leave the leaves, they mulch down and provide shelter for insects and small creatures. It may look a bit untidy, but who cares?
