everyday sacred




It began when I was watering the lawn. I dropped the hose as the water drops called to me. I found myself crawling in the grass, admiring the beauty of nature, photographing the cool, green world before me. (Yes, the neighbors do think I'm crazy. They're used to it.)

Linking up with Chrisy down under at living a good north coast life and sharing a little of the natural world around us.

Linking up with Laura at Shine the Divine for I Heart Macro week 60.

  2. I am obsessed with water droplets too! Right after it rains, I grab the camera and run outside.

  3. If you got up any closer to those water droplets, you'd be swimming!
    Ah...and wouldn't that be nice? Splashing around in your own backyard, relieving that scorching heat?
    Is July your hottest month?
    These pictures are macro magnificent!
