Summer floating by… (Macro Monday)

Whilst daughter and I were hiking over the summer we came across many of these spider webs still covered with early morning dew drops, giving the illusion of floating.

Wow, who would have ever thought I’d be using words like hiking and early morning in the one sentence? My goodness, the times they really ARE a changing!



Dewy Summer Wishes (WPC – Rounded)

After days of torrential rain and gale-force winds that striped my maple tree of all its leaves within a matter of hours, the sun is now shining, reminiscent of summer days that were. Days when dews drops glistened under the morning sun.

The Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge this week is… ROUNDED.





Early Morning Dew (Monochrome Monday)

Yes, yes, I know dandelion heads are the bane of most gardeners existence but when the sunlight reflects off those early morning dew drops covering one of them, they are mighty hard resist.

Personally, I think they are simply delightful, but hey, I’m just a girl!😆





Morning Bells (Monochrome Monday)

Next summer the plan is to work in the backyard. Until then however we continue to be surprised, and delighted, with what mother nature bestows upon us.


The added bonus of the early morning’s raindrops was the icing on this day’s cake!

Glacial Dew Drops – Monochrome Madness 56

New buds and raindrops, do you get the feeling Spring is in the air?!

Glacier Dew Drops

The continuing cycle of life, it’s wonderful. Let’s hope its something we never have to question… “mum, how much longer?”

Glacier Dew Drops

Going through the hundreds of photos whilst preparing our Alaskan Cruise Album, I came across this photograph I took at Mendenhall Glacier.

It has absolutely NOTHING to do with the glacier unless of course you count the water droplets!

Glacier Dew Drops

These were dew drops in spring time. Imagine what it’s like now with temperatures plummeting or the possibility of snow falling.

The lush green will have long gone, as to its return… “mum, how much longer?”

Effervescent Dew Drops

Perhaps effervescent is a tad ambitious but these dew drops reminded me of little bubbles as they clung to each and every section of the grass-blades possible.

Effervesant Morning Drops

As the morning light slowly made it’s way across the front lawn I could only wonder about all these droplets and… “mum, how much longer?”
