Emerald Elegance

Here are more drops of pitch from the great bejeweled Fir Tree. If you look closely, you can see the surrounding forest is reflected within, upside down.

I find myself in awe of their beauty.

Neat. I though of water at first.

We are having some delightful weather here today. I have been out for a brief period and sat in a chair and listened to the birds singing and the mother robin scolding her baby about going there or here. The hummingbird popped in on me and left before I could really get a good look. I find I can fall asleep at the drop of a hat and it feels so good to wake up and realize it is still daylight. Your flowers are beautiful. I have some open but not much variety yet.

Ah sissie, your emeralds are beautiful. Might I wear them sometime?

Wait, I think I already borrowed them - I ended up with pitch in my hair and down one arm after our walk the other day! Oh well, it all came out (and off). Eventually.

Sneaking in quietly to "blogdom" to visit my friend! As always I find a pic that I can lose myself in and let my immagination run away. Beautiful! The school year is winding down, perhaps i'll get back to blogging when things are peaceful!

Sometimes it is the simple things that hold the most beauty. Perhaps more often than naught.

Stunning.

That is one of the most wonderful things about you, Beth - you can see the world in a mere drop of water!
Lovely!
