Nature’s Jewels

2010 left with a bang…literally. The last day of the year woke me up with thunder, lovely winter lightning and thunder, how rare! As a result, when I looked out the window in the morning, every evergreen blade held a beautiful sparkling jewel.

Oh, how lovely! Like diamonds glistening in the morning sun. The Christmas lights must be put away, but nature’s lights are a bonus. A bonus gift from the Creator, with no negative side effects on the environment.

Baby pine in my backyard wears nature’s jewels. Heavy with drops of rain, this picture reminds me of music notes. I wonder what this pattern would sound like?
I see two bars of notes here; one on top and one on the bottom. I wish I could play it.

I did record the sound of thunder at 6am however. To hear it click here:

Happy New Year to all. I know this year will be better than the last, with certainty.

  1. Love the sound of thunder and rain 🙂 Especially when it’s at a distance, like on someone else’s blog 😉

    Great photos – the water droplets are like diamonds. Looking forward to how you’ll interpret that in your artwork.

  2. Joy: Thank you very much, Happy New Year!

    Drowsey: Me too, love that sound! It’s a far distance to hear thunder from Chicago..heh? LOL. Seriously, I love my sleep, but the sound of thunder gets me so excited, I would wake up willingly at any hour of the night or morning!!! Such power! Feel it!!!

    Carol: Yes! Green=spring and I too am looking forward to a little more green. Happy New Year to you as well! 😀
