Colour and clear droplets in challenging times

I got my morning walk in today; though I did get rained upon. I knew it was a bit suspect when looking over the valley it was grey and full of cloud.

Still there is much beauty to behold. My eye was of course drawn to droplets.

But also the beauty of blossoms.

And how about the rich growth in the autumn veggie garden.

  1. rocket and tomatoes ... yum!

    and I looked closely to see if I could see your reflection in any of the droplets, without success, although I did spot a lovely fence and a world turned upside down

  2. Hi P and LA - thanks for faithfully checking out the blog and for your comments. LA - good that I had my face out of frame - but you are right these tiny droplets are so clear they can reflect the surroundings. Go well and stay well. B

  3. always love the view of your valley
