Look closely

Look closely. The beautiful may be small.

Ok, you must explain that second picture, it looks like a Monet. And the fourth -- that's a popcorn tree.

I wonder if the popcorn tree comes in salted caramel? These are beautiful, Ms M, as is anon's poem. Happy weekend to you and Macie!

Altadenahiker: The second photo is of an ornamental plant I saw during a walk. The sprinklers had just finished, leaving those large, beautiful drops on the leaves. I have no idea what kind of plant it is. And thanks for identifying the popcorn tree. The name makes sense, even if it doesn't smell like popcorn.

Anon: Thank you for your "velvet" poem xxooxxoo

Shell: That's a good question! You and Ella have a happy weekend, too!

Velvet words indeed. Thank you, Anon, for another stunner. A volume awaits of Ms.M's photos with your accompanying poems.

Beautiful photos!
Love seeing ducks.
Yes, I agree with Karin, it looks like a popcorn tree.
Hope you have a lovely Sunday.

Ms M said...

Anon and I both thank you, Dive, for your kind words.

Hi Sonia: Thank you. I especially enjoyed the ducks; I had to quickly take the photos, as they were paddling away from us down the stream. I hope you had a lovely weekend.

Such a good eye, as usual.

Ms M said...

Thank you, Margaret :)

All great shots. I love the baby duck.

Petrea, thank you. I love seeing the baby ducks, too.
