I ran outside and took a few shots of a raindrop hanging off of the end of a Japanese Maple leaf. Can you see the glory of its inner world? Velvety moss and yellow leaves from the tree above are cradled in this tiny drop. A miracle indeed and it reminds me of a former post:Ted Kooser's words.
Best to all, e. you can click on the pictures for a closer look
I live in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. I am a wife, mother of two, grandmother to three, and companion to two Newfoundland dogs, one feral cat and ten chickens. We have a wholesale nursery and grow many Japanese Maples.
It's a good life!
