Seeing the Little Details

Raindrops,or for that matter, any water droplets, mean that the camera must be put to use.
Either a quick rain shower or when hand watering the plants, those droplets beg to be photographed.

Such was the case with these Lupin leaves.


 After a rain the evergreens are adorned with tiny jewels.Each little droplet suspended at the end of one of the needles,looks like a jewel.

Obviously these pictures are not very recent, but the beauty is timeless. The Fern Leaf Peonies are all done with blooming for this year, but I enjoyed them from start to finish.


I am always amazed at the beauty of water on the foliage.


After a trip to the grocery store, the fruit must be washed and you already know what happens next.A bright and sunny day was the perfect setting for taking these fresh washed grapes outside for a mini photo session.

These are Muscat Grapes,some of the sweetest grapes I have ever had and so pretty as well. It sure would be fun to walk through a vineyard and find clusters of grapes like this on the vine.

Closing Thought:
We don’t need to feel unimportant when the God of the universe is that interested in us!

Rain drops or any kind of water makes a great sight. As always, another great showing.

This last picture of your grapes is GORGEOUS! I have never seen peonies with leaves like this!! Yes, after it rains, I always like driving around looking for leaves and flowers to snap.

You are so right, your photos are inspiring, I feel the same way with frost on plants.
Take care, Gordon.

Absolutely gorgeous Ruth! My favorites are the 'jewels' hanging on the evergreen and the last of the grapes!! But of course, all are beautiful in its own way. Never heard of a 'fern' peony 'til now. I bet they're pretty and dainty looking, right?

For some reason droplets give life to a photo. The peony bud is my favorite.

Ruth, lovely images! Seems we've had lots of opportunities for getting these rain drop shots! I think it may be changing for the better starting tomorrow for awhile! Hope so!
