Morning Jewels


'Every dew drop and rain drop has a whole heaven within it.' 
-  Henry Wadsworth Longfellow


Sunday morning I woke up to a sparkling carpet of dew covering the lawn.


The dew was clinging to the unmowed grass and weeds.  The sun was bright.  Everywhere I turned there were little jewels shining.  It was a photographers dream.  By the time I was finished taking pictures, my jeans were soaked from sitting on the wet grass... and I had a smile on my face.  It is spring.  

Have you been enjoying spring weather?  

Today I am joining Kim Klassen's Friday Finds.  My top image was textured with Kim's texture avery and used Kim's Lightroom preset lightandairy on all my images.  

Thank you for stopping by!
Have a great weekend!

  1. I just got back from Portland OR yesterday and I took some of these little sweet weeds but I didn't get a jewel like this. I think I got a bug though! :) Love the little jewel Michelle.

  2. Oh, dandelion girl, you sure lived up to your name today. You can make a simple weed shine like roses. Beautiful images.

  3. How charming! I know exactly what you mean: those dew drops really are like little diamonds scattered over the grass. It's a lovely way of looking at the whole dew phenomenon. Wishing you a wonderful weekend, Bonny

  5. Oh I've always wanted to capture lots of dew drops on the grass, but so far haven't. I like that there was uncut grass to glisten in the sun. Love the triptych of grass, flowers and puffs of seeds. Hope you are enjoying your spring weekend!!
