04.13.2021 Raindrops Keep Falling on my Head

And on the leaves of this Wood Aster-Eurybia sp. I’ll figure out the species later this year when it grows a bit larger and has flowers.  Too soon to tell, for me anyway. I was photographing a few things on a favorite ledge when I spotted these wet leaves while gathering a few trillium images for a post.  I got soaked but had a good time.

Beside the drops, I also liked the hint of purple.

    That looks amazing! The interesting leaves, the ‘turret’ leaf bud about to unfurl, the waterdrops, and the exquisite moss background .. is all perfect! Wow wow wow. 🙂

  2. The blues the rain sent to meet you won’t defeat you;
    It won’t be long ’til happiness steps up to greet you.

    The moss creates a nice textured backdrop. More rain at the end of the week!

    • And maybe those of you in the hilltowns will even see some snow. If you do it is my fault for putting the snow blower in the shed. 🙂 At the expense of having to forego photography I hope we get a gully washer but won’t hold my breath waiting.

    We’re hoping and hoping for some rain here. Everything about your photo bespeaks lushness and growth; I especially like the contrast between the two unusual greens.

    • That moss covers much of the ledges where these and other wildflowers grow. It makes a nice background for those flowers. I hope you get rain as I hope we do also. We are a bit droughted right now but probably not as bad as Texas.

    How big are those leaves? When I zoomed in and realized that is moss in the background I was surprised. Beautiful photo.

    I like the contrast in texture between the softness of the moss and the slight sheen on the leaves. Feels as if I could just reach out and stroke the moss!

    What an absolutely beautiful intimate view of nature. I really like this, so simple. The drops and the purple help bring it to life.

    Raindrops on plants and flowers are like pieces of jewellery. They enhance the beauty of the unidentified plant in your photo, Steve.
