Morning Jewels

20 08 2014

Yesterday morning was cool and felt more like the end of September than mid-August. I set out on my morning walk with no expectation of what I might find. As I approached the abandoned house I had a feeling that I should visit the pond out back. I trudged through the wet grass wishing I had put on my rubber boots as my feet began to feel the cool wet dew that had soaked through my shoes.

When I reached the pond I began carefully inspecting the tall grass, cattails, and phragmites as green frogs squealed and leaped to the safety of the water. The early birds and I were looking for insects and spiders not frogs but they didn’t know they were not on the menu.

A spider’s web caught my eye and it turned out to be the door to the fairy world where dew drops mirrored the world and insects were adorned with jewels. Isn’t funny how we can walk along blind until one small thing opens our eyes to the beauty that surrounds us.

Here is a collection of photographs from my walk that prove “all that glitters is gold.”
