a moment of beautiful – sun on icy drops of rain

with 3 comments


After the rain overnight and some icy temperatures, the melting ice on the Old Man’s Beard lichen and the ice coat clinging to the branches made for a beautiful scene outside my guest room window. To add to the show, a stray reflection of sun projected dazzles of light on the garage doors.

a moment of beautiful – slices of orange

the space – a window with curtains

the beautiful – dried slices of orange


Yesterday I came into the house just as the sunlight was beaming through the window and experienced a moment so beautiful –  a dazzling display of light and shadow. 

Last Christmas, I sliced oranges and lemons and dried them as decorations for our tree at work.  When Christmas was over, they were too pretty to throw away, so I strung them on raffia and hung them on a wooden coat hanger in the front window. 

The sunlight shining through those dried orange slices, in combination with the shadows on the sheer curtains, was magical.
