Sand Dollars, Rain and Light Balls

25 Aug

1   I was sorting through one of my treasure boxes today, one that I haven’t looked at for years and years and I discovered four beautiful sand dollars, three still hairy and one cleaned up by the sea. We collected them on Savannah Beach, Georgia, USA in 1980! They have been wrapped up in tissue paper for many years and it was a lovely surprise to see them again and to remember our walks along the beach. Click on any photo to see the delicate flower pattern. They really are the most beautiful things.

2   The garden is delighting in the rain and I like how the downpour has distorted the view from the kitchen.

    Finding sand dollars feels if someone has give you a million dollars. And they can be found all over the world. I have even heard of ancient ones found on mountains. So the is element of primal to beauty. Perhaps that is way they feels ‘special’ in your hands. I have a box or two, and none look like yours, that surprises me.
