Columbine Clouds ~ The Wednesday Garden


As may have been gathered by those who come here often, a lot of cloud watching goes on at Number 31. Hours can drift by as we monitor movements above Wenlock Edge, the visual effects further enhanced by the false horizon created by the rising slope of Townsend Meadow. But then, with the full-on blooming of the columbines over the fence, I had the notion of cloud watching from a new perspective, one that involved some activity on my part.

It turned out to be a tad challenging on the knees, but I was pleased to have this bugsโ€™-eye view of the flowers, and also to spot a tiny spider sheltering under the columbine canopy.

So many ways to avoid writing the magnum opus.

  1. I think cloud watching falls under the category of ‘refilling the creative well’ … especially when it’s done from the bugs’-eye view ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Ooh havenโ€™t we had some glorious cloudscapes the past few days, Tish? Iโ€™m sure theyโ€™re pretty similar where you are to what weโ€™ve experienced. I like to get down amongst the grass & wildflowers for their perspective too. How lovely to spot a little spider! Iโ€™m always glad when they stay where they are though & donโ€™t make a run for it…towards me! Itโ€™s strange to think, if spiders & bugs had brains that thought & saw things in the same way as us, the grass & flora would be their jungle, a wall, skyscrapers, puddles would be lakes etc..itโ€™s a scary world down there!

    1. Love those giant vistas you created, Debbie. As I read your words, I felt myself shrinking and shrinking. Yikes! I’m no bigger than an ant now ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚
