Moments in time – early morning, last day of June, or Friday.
“Nothing is really work unless you would rather do something else.” Sir James Barrie
I am stuck for more – beginnings and endings, the edge of something new or the end of a month a week, or even – night and day.
This week’s weather has been typical early summer. It was cool and dry at the beginning of the week and it has transitioned to warm and humid. This morning when I ventured out into the garden to capture my ‘delta’ photos the lawn was covered in the morning dew. Last night’s air was saturated with water vapor and overnight in condensed and settled across the landscape.
Monday morning, I noticed the lilies were beginning to open and spread their color throughout the back garden. This morning, yesterday’s blossoms had closed and were waiting for today’s sunlight to reopen and then there are the buds waiting to open for the first time and spread their yellow hues along the fence line.
Soon, by midday, the dew will be gone, lifted back into the air by the morning sun only to return when the sun fades and night returns.
Friday is here and I have a long list of shoulds, coulds, and woulds. So, I’d better jump and join the day and jump in, jump out, and seize the day. Making the Days Count, one day at a time, just like the dew.
When was the last time you ventured out into the dewy morning? What did you discover?
Today’s post is inspired by this week’s WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge: Delta. This week, share a photograph that signifies transitions and change to you. It can be the very beginning of a phase, or the very end. As you pick up your lens, explore the ways in which a single photograph can express time, while only showing us a small portion of any given moment.

Beautiful choices this week Clay. Having spent the last week in much cooler climes there wasn’t nearly as much dew in the mornings as we have at home. I DO love a dewy shot and yours are wonderful!
thank you, the dewy shots were luck – went out to capture the flowers and got something new and different. I woke up in a different place this morning and the deck was coated with dew, followed by a gentle rain, tomorrow morning I am exploring in the morning. It’s gonna be a great day.
I love the tiny drew drops.
thank you – it was a lucky shot,I had no idea that I would find the yard covered in dew like I did… sometimes you just have to roll… thanks for stopping in and have a wonderful day.
Yes. Sometimes your just lucky. Nonetheless, I really like the photos.
Have a great weekend too!
Thank you, I do too.
Beautiful captures 🙂 I would say more humid than dewy here, however; the lighting is amazing and you see things more clearly like a spider web. Happy Weekend – Enjoy!
thank you. the temperature and humidity changed and it was much more comfortable the following day… still wet in the morning, but not nearly as dewy.. love the morning – quiet and peaceful – enjoy your Sunday!
I venture into the dewy morning everyday with my wee little dogs. 4 A.M. is a pretty dewy time of day. I love the quiet and the smell of the world waking up. Roses and brewing coffee! What a combo.
yes, coffee. coffee is the jumpstart for the day and of course the dog, reminding me it’s time to get the day started. thank you for stopping in and have a wonderful day
Very true. My dogs start reminding me its a new day around 4:30 A.M.
I love dewy mornings and enjoy relishing the garden at that time. Best if there’s a good hot cup of coffee to return to though!
and there was… a good cup of coffee, that is… it is always so peaceful in the morning as the day begins. thank you for stopping in and enjoy your Friday.
