I can’t help rushing out with the camera on the rare mornings where light overnight rain or heavy dew coincides with a brighter morning.
It can’t be too sunny, or the precious jewels thus revealed will have been dried up.
Then all I’d see would be a spiderweb, miraculous in itself, but more common.
On a special morning like this the web becomes ‘value-added’, enhanced to a collared necklace of great beauty — and value, at least to me. The design is always different, and although the jewels — round as pearls, translucent as diamonds — may be ephemeral, the impression on me is lasting.
Bu the way, the lichen-tufted arrangement of sticks on which the necklace is displayed used to be a living rose bush; it’s one of the many victims of perpetual wallaby pruning!
