Diamonds on velvet

Another hardy Pansy has popped its velvety face to the light today after keeping safe through the past week’s snow, sleet, hail, rain, bitter temperatures and howling winds.

Gentle rain fell here overnight and in the still conditions, post storm, the raindrops clung like diamonds to velvet.DSCF2817 (1280x961)DSCF2818 (1280x960) (1280x960)DSCF2822


The jewels of a winter morning

Chilly showers in the night left rain drops hanging from many of the branches in the garden this morning.


The stillness of the early morning kept these jewels sparkling long enough for me to take some photographs.
