life is a garden,
not a road
we enter and exit
through the same gate
where we go matters less
than what we notice.

The rains came yesterday and poured down upon us. It rained and rained and rained. The rain was most welcome. The grass is still brown in spots, but it looks as though most everything else has really perked up after the good drenching. We may get more rain today. The air is soupy and warm, always a good combination for pop-up storms and showers.

The light near sunset yesterday was simply amazing. That’s why I gave in and posted the tulips on one of my days off from blogging. It really was too pretty not to share right away. I also took some photos of the trees at the back of the pond. The light created rainbow hues in spots.

I was shooting through the standing stone we have at the top of the hill and the flash went off. It was so bright outside that I wasn’t expecting the flash, but decided to wait and see how this photo looked on the computer screen before deciding to delete it.
I find it kind of interesting. It’s certainly a different view of the pond (barely visible through the weeds). The stone was bleached out by the flash. It’s an earthy-brown color, a little of which you can see at the bottom of the hole in the middle of the stone.

The perception of the beautiful is gradual, and not a lightning revelation; it requires not only time, but some study.

If all is working well and I scheduled these correctly, my blog should be (more or less) publishing itself these days. I am on holiday for a couple of weeks, but the blog should keep on posting on a daily basis with some new photos.
I hope you all enjoy what’s left of summer. I know I will be. I’ll pop in if/when I can, mostly depending on how exhausted I am by the end of the day.
And just for fun: The music.
