Snowdrops, Dew Drops, and Silk

Elkstone Dew on WebDew drops on a spider web at Elkstone Church, England.

Elkstone GravesOn a misty morning in a church yard, the world collapses into a local dampened space. The mist appears to buffer sound and movement; silence seems loud when all is still and quiet.

Elkstone WebA dew-adorned web strung between fading snowdrops is proof of recent stirrings of life in the grave yard.

Elkstone SnowdropsThe dew reveals a spider’s past wanderings among the snowdrops.

Elkstone Water DropWithout the gossamer assistance, would this leaf blade have succumbed to the seemingly heavy load of its rock wall reflecting dew drop?

Elkstone SpiderPerhaps the tender of the garden has been found? Found but definitely not disturbed.

Elkstone CrocusesNearby are dew dappled crocuses…

Elkstone Bumble BeeIncluding one in which a bumblebee sleeps. Here, among the graves, even the epitome of buzzing life is still in the mist.

    LOVE that bee! And the rock wall in the dew drop … and the galaxy of drops in the first photo … simply gorgeous.

    I agree with Monique, plus the misty churchyard. The bee asleep in the crocus is stunning!

  3. Life is good and…beautiful!
