All That Glitters

Nature’s reminder

All that glitters is not gold

Sometimes it’s better!

We had a little rain recently. My plants rejoiced.

Cape Town still has harsh water restrictions, even though the dams are 46% full, which is a huge improvement on last year’s 20%.

However, it has hardly rained so far this year. This is our rainy season and will be over in a few more months.

Let’s hope we get some good downpours of this precious substance, which in the photo above looks like quicksilver.

    Not rain but a few weeks ago was an exceptionally heavy dew followed by a snap ground frost. To walk the dog takes us down a path covered in spiders webs, and they were all glistening in the morning sun with natures diamonds of ice decorating them.

    There’s nothing more precious than the glitter of water in a water-starved area. Some of those water drops do look like quicksilver, and the rest look like scattered diamonds! I just love your photos Sci.

    Wouldn’t you think that by now Mother Nature would’ve figured out a way to dole out rainfall more sensibly? Maybe some computer whiz can make her a spreadsheet she could follow!

    I’d gladly send you some of our seemingly endless rainfall….if only it were that easy. With water being so scarce in your area, I think it’s wonderful that you continue to provide water sources in your gardens for all the critters who visit. Kudos to you!!

      Thank you very much. πŸ™‚
      I do love to see diamond water drops after a little rain. πŸ™‚
      Even when we were at our worst restrictions I’d still fill up all the water bowls out of my ration. I hate to see the creatures of my garden go thirsty. They repay me by visiting πŸ˜€
