dc diamond

wonderful Norma came up with the theme 'diamond '
i was so enchanted with the green color of the 'diamond' she found .
so 'green' almost took over.

green, pigs and diamonds...maybe not an obvious association but:

in my head were images from a documentary i saw quite a while ago,
it was about a man and his pig that was trained to search for truffles in the woods somewhere in France.

the beautiful green light in that peaceful wood, the mossy trees and than that pig softly oinking and poking....

the truffles were sold for high prices and served the next day in
fancy restaurants to people in fine designer outfits wearing splendid jewelery  and sparkling 

please do visit Norma's lovely blog and see more shiny stones,

have a beautiful weekend

lizard and snail

one quick, the other slow,
one loves the sun, the other the rain.

dc numen

up 'till now we are having a mild winter here,
but last week we had some frost,
a thin layer of ice on water, on glass,
on the landscape, changing  colors and mood,
air that bites your face, your lungs,
slippery paths.
cold, smooth, tingling, pricking, freezing,
the numen of frost

 Tammie Lee presented us with a fantasitic theme this week,
please visit her lovely blog and se where she and the other participants  discovered 'numen'

have a beautiful weekend
