Beauty in the details


Raindrops on Japanese maple

It is 70 degrees today, cloudy with the threat of rain. Stormy weather is predicted for Saturday and of course has people on edge. The tornadoes that came through a few years ago is still fresh in the memory.



There is beauty in the garden this time of year, you just have to look for it. Often, it is lurking in the small details.
