Gazing Ball

 
I have this cheap little teardrop gazing ball. I mean $10 at a discount store. Plastic. But it's held its color and shine for maybe ten years. Best lasting garden ornament I've ever had. It stays out all winter, gets no preferential treatment.

Today, I was walking past it on the snowshoes and discovered one more interesting thing about the little blue bauble.

Sort of like having my own private aurora borealis in a miniature fantasy world.

Oh, that's cool! I was gonna warn you to bring it in if it was glass. Never mind.

That is a small victory to have your own private aurora borealis.

Hope you will have more in 2014.

What a cool image ~ your very own aurora borealis, indeed! It would seem that you're coloring your life with skill and generosity. I can't resist the metaphors.

Enjoy your day, and all the colors in it!
