Raindrops, Soap Bubble and Glorious Paintings

26 Jun

1    The rain made lovely lines of drops along the ladders that go to the back wall for painting when the rain has stopped and shiny lines of drops on the Crocosmia leaves. I didn’t see the very delicate spider until I saw my photograph.

2    Mr S spotted this beautiful little soap bubble floating around the kitchen. We followed it for almost a minute!

3    Choc Chip Uru of  commented that yesterday’s fabric (which I had to return to the shop to buy today – it was calling to me!) reminded her of India. That  reminded me of some beautiful paintings we saw in an exhibition some years ago. The exhibition was called Twin Perspectives and the artists are twin sisters. There’s a glorious mix of cultures in the pictures. You’ll have to click on the photos to see the detail.

    Wow. Seeing the rain drops on the green leaves like that – close, so beautiful, like pearl drops in a way. You really do see, see so much.

      I do love raindrops! It was the spider that really pleased me as I hadn’t even noticed him and then, there he was, in my photo!
      Hope you are doing okay…

      Funny how we say we dislike bad weather but we both found the raindrops inspiring! 🙂

    All photos are great – but the rain drops are my favorite. You also have a very lovely yard! Patty

      The paintings were stunning! If you ever get the chance to see them, take it. I’m sure you would love them as I do. 🙂
