1 On some of the paving slabs on our new patio are some remarkably beautiful fern-like patterns. I thought they were fossilised ferns but I’m told it’s oxides in the stone. Click to see the detail.
2 It has been properly warm today with such a lovely Cornish blue sky.
3 Singing tonight with Hilary and the Inglehearts was so lovely. We did ‘The Soldiers’ Farewell’ with its beautiful harmonies and cadences – so moving, it gave me the shivers.

I can’t tell! I don’t know. Was it a scientist who told you they were oxides i the concrete? They actually look like fossilised ferns to me… but they are the best nature-grafitti I’ve ever seen.
Oh, I love how you find 3 beautiful things each day 🙂

Whatever they are, they are very lovely and I found another, very pale, one today!

Only a calm and peaceful mind is able to observe nature’s fine work ~ the fern-like patterns.

Fern looks like a fossil in rock. Quite beautiful.

It is isn’t it? They certainly add to the beauty of the new courtyard area. 🙂

Whatever they are in the stones, they are very special. I love the detail. The first one looks like a snowflake. And at last, some beautiful weather for you in the UK!!!

Thank you for your comments. Yes, it does feel like ‘at last” Let’s hope it does last!
Glad you can see the beauty in the stones too.
Have a good day

Oxides or fossils, they look really antique and beautiful 😀

Yes, they do, don’t they? There are lots of them too and they make the patio much more interesting!
