rainforest...

balancing act

little droplets

jewelled

hanging on

saturated

scattered drops

the forest was so damp and oversaturated with water on our hike, although it didn't rain while we there. i was a bit obsessed with capturing the beauty of the water droplets resting like jewels on the plant leaves. the way they cling precariously to edges and stems, or are cupped gently in the dips and folds of leaves is amazing, don't you think?

next up? fungi! or flowers, i can't decide. did i mention i took a lot of photos? although there may be a bit of stitching to share before then.

-------------------------------------------

i just had the 50th sale in my shop! yay! i will be sending that person a little something extra with their package. and on that note, august 23 will be the one year anniversary of my etsy shop and i am planning a good giveaway for that. i'll keep you posted. thanks to everyone for your continued support, i truly appreciate it. thanks also to helen wheeler shaw for featuring me on her blog today!

-------------------------------------------

it actually looks like it might be a hot one out there today.
• in honour of that, i'm thinking popsicles!
this sounds like a perfect way to spend a summer day - and i'm in love with margie's owl!
• and not really summer-related, but heidi always has tasty bread recipes, so i can't wait to try out this new one.
