My Heart Could See

what I could not capture with the camera.  After a very dry winter the ground was sad and left wanting.  March brought us greatly needed gentle rain.
Just like Dad always said there were diamonds in the grass.
If only I could have captured them .
The Dutch
and Purple Cabbage were happy and settled.
The plants held on to the drops
and bowed their heads in gratefulness.

Nice work capturing the droplets. My ground is purely squishy but mowing is only about a week away. Ah Spring.

Good morning Gail
Wow, you've captured these perfectly, and I love that saying "diamonds in the grass."

Nature can give us so much ...

Hope you have a good Monday and a great week ahead too.
I'm sure you will be busy.

We have some nice blue skies at the moment, a glorious Spring-like day.

All the best Jan

you did and it is beautiful!! our pretty flowers and seeds, surely need the rain!!!

Josie Two Shoes said...

So beautiful! I could feel their gratitude for the rain, just as I can see the gratitude of the fat rabbits in our yard as this year green grasses have been plentiful for a change. I'm sure the coyotes are grateful as well, but that's another story! :-)
