Sunlight on a dew-laden lawn.
Diamond sparkles shimmering in the gentle breeze.
............& one coral-coloured Gladiolus glowing like embers in a fire, flowers just opening to the light.

A baby stick instect !!, my middle son was cleaning them out a couple of days ago ( he has about 15 in a large tank), one must have got away when he wasn't looking.  I was planting some pansy by the kitchen step and something tickled my arm, I think he wanted to come back indoors  big_smile

Columbine flowers (granny bonnets, aquilegias) out! Two pretty yellow ones. And lots more buds coming.

PS I tried to take a picture of the pelargonium but the photoes made it look pink instead of the dark, dark red it is.

when taking pics of dark green I always tune the light of the camera a little lower than it indicates otherwise everything comes out yellowish

there will be more experts than me telling you better Joy
