a temporary treat …

Is it obvious what this is?  (btw, the spoon is a large serving spoon, for perspective)  I think it looks like the largest pearl tapioca I’ve ever seen or maybe albino caviar on steroids!

But it’s neither … it’s hail that I really took a close look at when it fell last week.  And I was totally charmed by the small perfect pellets.

I’m reminded that it’s always interesting when I take the time to “smell the roses” … or in this case, “study the hail”.

    The hail, you say!

    You really did a good job of capturing these photos. Those perfectly rounded ice pebbles are pretty neat. The weather was odd that day. We had no hail at all, just six or seven miles away.

    Can’t top that Hilary, can we?

    We got a free new roof thanks to some (larger) hail a couple of years back! 🙂

    Hilary — Linda’s right — we could NEVER top you. Keep it up — we love it!

    Linda — Thank you. It was odd, but after reading Beth’s comment, I’m reminded how fortunate we were that it was those tiny little pellets.

    Beth — Thanks for the reminder — hail isn’t always “cute”!
