I wonder why it should be pearls of wisdom? Why not rubies, emeralds or sapphires?
Today's picture is really a scene-setter. This is the Waterhall valley, with its dew pond. This photo was taken a few weeks ago. I was walking here yesterday but it was too dull to get a better picture. I heard a frog croaking, presumably one of the tadpoles having grown, but failed to catch a sight of it.
