After a Spring day on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday were very cold and very foggy; this morning the fog has cleared to leave a cold, cloudy day. No outside photography today, I thought, casting around for a post subject.
Then I happened to go upstairs and look out of the landing window onto the slowly emerging front garden. My Spirea 'Bridal Wreath' is just coming into bud and great droplets of water were hanging from the branches - it looked so beautiful. And when I went out to photograph it I saw that same dew sitting in the emerging leaves of the aquelegia plants. Which all goes to show that even on a dull, miserable day Nature can show off its wonders.
It is good to find something good to say about the power of Nature after the terrible earthquake and subsequent tsunami; yet even more terrible is the thought of the possible outcome of the Nuclear threat. Will man never learn?
If you want to know just how many Nuclear Plants there are in the world then you could do worse than pop over to Poet-in-Residence (see my side bar) where he listed them a couple of days ago. You could easily scroll down to see - and I can assure you that the number of plants around the world is truly shocking. Now the world holds its breath.
