DIAMONDS AT DAWN

Monday morning opened with thick fog and , even though it was only 6 a.m., I thought it would be near-criminal if I didn’t stagger outdoors with my camera. My initial plan had been to either walk down to the sisters’ orchard or maybe even to the Falls, but I spent the next two hours in my own backyard and there was more than enough to keep me happy.

There are a few words that just drop me to the floor with unrestrained giggles. One is “shrubbery” and if you are a Monty Python fan, I need say no more. (In fact, if you are a Monty Python fan, you are at this moment going on about herring and shouting “Ni!” at your computer.) The other one is “jewelry.” When I say  “jewelry” aloud, I flash immediately on Gilda Radner’s classic SNL rant on “Soviet Jewelry” and that’s it for me. These bejeweled spider webs are strands of diamonds, exquisite necklaces, Mother Nature’s jewelry…oh, bother. There I go again.

It was really hard to come up with a title for this post that DIDN’T go there. I considered “Jewelry on the Shrubbery” for a title, but knew I’d have to spend hours cleaning the coffee off my screen and keyboard.

    Hmm, well when I think of Monty Python, dead parrots appear before my eyes. I’m just a very naughty boy. 🙂

    Lovely photos.

    Hail Mary full of grace. Just saying for no. 3. I was hoping you were “out there’ and I’d see these jewels.

    I think you should take the third one down to the sisters, looks like a rosary to my Lutheran eyes.
