As I walked the dogs this morning I noticed the glistening dew drops. They were extra sparkly today. Was it because it was cold and the drops had frozen? We have 2 types of grass in my neighborhood. Flat grass and round grass. The dew beads up so beautifully on the flat grass. I had to photograph them and hoped I could capture that same moment of awe.
I finished walking the dogs, brought them into the house and fed them. I grabbed my camera and went back outside. Unfortunately a half hour makes all the difference when you’re photographing dew. They were no longer frozen little balls. They were now melted water drops, albeit pretty to look at. So I took some pictures.

Today is the first day I have really paid attention to a local farm that I must pass along my daily travels at least 6 times a week. Today wasn’t really any different then any other day. Except, today was rainy, gray and gloomy. As I passed the farm today, I noticed how the water was beading up on bushes that were growing small green berries that were beginning to turn red (like holly).
Luckily I had my trusty camera with me. I turned my car around, pulled up to the curb and parked my car. I have never once (in the 18 years of living 5 minutes from this farm), even thought about walking around this small local farm. You know, the one that usually has an unattended stand with a basket for payment for items purchased.
Here is what I saw while I walked around..

I realize I should take time to look at the things right in my back door.
