Diamonds in Your Garden
Isn’t it fascinating how rain
adds that certain dimension to garden
life. Obviously it sustains the
plants and makes them live, but it also adds dynamics to photos. In the following pictures you will see
that special dimension – diamonds. The droplets glisten like diamonds on the petals and on the
leaves. Even in the stillness of
the photos, there is felt the movement and motion of the rain that was. -
- Interesting. The following are only a dozen of the
more than one hundred photos taken after the recent rains.
all photos on this blog since the beginning: This blog is a journal of
the actual plants at Gardens at Waters East, no photos are ever

this private garden.)
