Morning Raindrops

We had some rain yesterday and overnight after a long dry period. The plants were crying out for it and so was I if I’m honest – the heat has been too much for me. This morning the sun was shining and the garden was covered in droplets so we had to pop out and get some photos. Not all of them turned out well, but these are some that did…

Here’s some droplets on a blade of grass that are catching the light of the sun beautifully. It kind of looks like I might have photoshopped the sparkles in, but I promise I didn’t!


Here’s a grass flower all covered in droplets, and if you look closely towards the tip, you’ll see that there is a bug in the big droplet! I think it must be an aphid, and I hope it’s swimming, not drowning in there!


More droplets on grass here, but the droplets have reflections of alchemilla flowers in them so they look a bit different.


And one last photo of droplets on another blade of grass. In this one I like the way there’s a droplet with a lovely sun-sparkle in it as well as another to the right with a bit of rainbow bokeh as well!
