Blooming Friday ~ Diamonds are not forever


Riches abound in the garden. These sweet Prairie Phlox from this spring and Spiderwort 'Zwanenburg Blue' are graced with a delicate coating of diamond dust
 

 

while Purple Muhly Grass sports a fortune's worth of sparkle.
 

 

While these diamonds are ephemereal their worth is priceless. Join Katerina at roses and stuff for more Blooming Fridays.

  16. You're right - little diamonds! Beautiful but such tiny little drops. Who would have ever thought drops could be so tiny? Love the muhly grass sparkles, too, and the last picture - with the starburst below the rose. Good capture!

  18. The raindrops or is it dew add so much to the photos. I particularly like the image of the Muhly grass. That's a new one on me ( and the wish list)!

  22. Love the metaphor and photos!! I have just started digging a pond inspired by one of your posts!! You talked about your puddle of frogs by the horses water tank and I thought "I don't need a huge pond! I can dig a puddle!!" My pond is bigger than a puddle but you reminded me that being effective and being grand aren't synonymous. Thanks!!
