Nature's Jewels

As the snow melted, the sun came out.
Nature's Jewels were here!
I caught this beautiful amber gem
Nestled in a fir branch.
(To see it clearly, click on the picture to enlarge)

I captured these diamond-coated Hawthorne berries

Up close and personal!!!

Even the pine tree dripped with beauty.

I wish I could capture these jewels for real -
I would wear them to a party!
For the New Year!

I guess it's just as well, since I am staying home and celebrating quietly ...
Perhaps in my sleep ... I can dream of
Nature's Jewels.


  1. Isn't God just the best maker of all things...his creations so outshine the bumbling hand of man. Beautiful pictures Sissy dear.
    I too am looking forward to this newness, I am hoping to find something I lost along the way. With friends like you I can't miss.
    May this New Year be filled with many blessings for you and yours. Love you, Deann

  2. Wow--those are gorgeous alright--but I think that first one is really a faery....

    I've always wanted to catch a faery in the wilds and I'm just sure that's what you did!

    Fills my eyes, sweet Sissy--these fill my eyes.

  3. Yeah, wouldn't it be cool if you could wear a real rain drop as a pendant on a necklace?
    Happy New year, Clytie - happy that I got to know you this year:)

  4. Beautiful pictures, very peaceful. Have a happy new year.
