It's Magic



Oh boy, lots of rain yesterday! I love the leaves of Lady's Mantle on rainy days -- they catch the raindrops and transform from an ordinary green leaf to a sparkling spread of green velvet, scattered with diamonds. :)

Sometimes I come here and I am so amazed. Sometimes I think to myself, "this is my favorite photo of Mary's!"

This is one of those times.

Love.

My dad always said, "If you look closely, you can see the diamonds in the rain."

Beautiful photographic capture of his words.

M A G I C indeed....carissima Mary; just incredibly wonderful...!!!
I do love also the spring rain; (if it is not too much..), the colours of the flowers; all the green becomes truly MAGIC...!

oh, I missed many of your posts; I get now the chance to look at them; life and work in this period of the year is the busiest for me; very happy and joyful (apart of a little knee incident, which made me hopling around a little while);
I love to go through your marvellous photo-work; I have to make you a big COMPLIMENT; your Photography is SUBLIME!!!!!!!!

Thank you so much for your lovely visits in my Tuscany; I appreciate them so very much!!

Have a wonderful, sunny and happy sunday, carissima Mary!
ciao ciao elvira
