For the acrophobic that I am, it is most unusual for me to sit in one! 

These unusual nooks and crannies…

As much as I love Nature, I am wary of going too close into the nooks and crannies, if you will, of the plants and trees. I am not most comfortable at the thought of insects and the like. But one morning of last week, I was prodded by my visiting mother to check out this latticework in one such spot in the grass and close to the plants roots, in the dark and the deep. It was magical how the dew drops settled on the fragile spiderweb: this striking show tucked away from the world.

Collage… on a wall

Somewhere on the highway, I zoomed past this uniquely collaged wall and screeched to a stop on the shoulder. Amongst the antiqued collection on it, what attracted me was the sign of “Hope”. See if you can spot hope; its there but you have to work to find it. (Pun intended 🙂 )

Below is a picture of a happy wall, a shelf full of jars filled with warmth and happiness. Found in an old country store…
