Ever had one of those days? This morning when I went out to water my containers, I found the bunnies had been busy in the veggie garden. Looks like there won't be any yellow beans this year.
Then when I went back inside I proceeded to bake a 2 layer cake for my decorating class. Using 6 inch pans for the first time, I put (way) too much batter in and the cakes rose, and rose then spilled over like a flow of lava. What was left wasn't pretty and believe me, neither was the inside of the oven. Because I was making a white cake, there were lots of egg whites and the globs on the racks and bottom of the oven smelled like burning marshmallows. What a mess!
I went outside to do some gardening, it's always a good activity for relieving stress.
Mother Nature must have seen the black cloud hanging over me because I looked up at one point to see something glistening in the sunlight. Wow! The most beautiful dragonfly I'd ever seen; shimmering black and gold. Run inside and get the camera! Hope the insect will be there when I get back...and it was.
The wings have a lavender hue to them, isn't this a beauty?
I tried a new on-line photo editing program called Ribbet which is pretty much the same as Picnic was. Finding mosaic templates was a challenge for a time but then along came PicMonkey and now Ribbet. I used it to show a few other pretty dragonflies. Check it out yourself.
