* Crouching in the grass to welcome a bounding-towards-me cat, I'm close enough to notice a tiny shiny yellow dish, a white sun shape, the gorgeous spot of a forget-me-not.

* Brushing the plastic red watering can against the bushy mint to get to the streaming water releases clouds of clean green scent.

* Glancing up, a cresent moon in the mid-blue sky, the outside edge an opaque white curve and the inside delicately shaded.
