Surprise ... Surprise ...
The first surprise this chilly morning after a frosty night. We discovered the first apple blossom started to bloom on our apple tree. There were still drops left after the morning rain as sparkling diamonds from the treasury of Mother Nature.
Second surprise was the theme 'Diamonds' for this mono Monday challenge. Found the subject just beyond the corner of the back door ... ;-)
Thank you davidc for being so kind hosting theme and challenge for mono Monday this month.
As often best seen in large ... and also in the extra photos section you can see the coloured version of this mono.
Thank you all for visiting my journal and your kind comments and supporting stars for yesterday's derelict Sunday "A Coot Nest". Very much appreciated!
