Gnomes, Watercolours and Diamonds

Our Autumn Gnomes have arrived from Rjabinnik at Etsy.
I absolutely adore these creatures, they are so beautiful!

The gnomes asked Big Seed to make them an Autumn watercolour, so he did.

He used the pipette technique he is fond of.

Then the gnomes wanted to show us a secret place in the garden,
some real Autumn treasures...

Tiny dewdrops all around these Lady's Mantle leaves
sparkling like real diamonds.
It was such a surprise to see on our wander round the garden.

I have had this in the garden for years and never noticed this before.

What magic will you see tomorrow in unexpected places?
