Drops



In the dewy morning, a drop of water clung to a frond of a king palm, above, while below, smaller drops gathered on the petals of a South African blossom, the sparaxis.

I'm afraid we have snow on the way, they say only an inch or so, but it won't be here long with temps in the 50's, but it's just an evil reminder...

Boy I would've smashed that mutant grasshopper. Since I have lots of prairie grasses on my 6 acres, the grasshoppers come from miles around to visit. I think I'm gonna try a few chickens this summer, great organic bug eaters!

The sparaxis is lovely and it's a great name.

Thank you for the quotations you left me, they were just what I needed after a 27hour stint.
