    1. Spring is finally here. The grass is so green it glows. And with the rain, it also glitters!

  3. __ Great Sandy; in your nifty photo and verse, and by seeing those droplets of water collecting in the leaves, you've reminded me of this long ago scribble about Mountain Laurel, and the 'dry' doves. _m

    1. Lovely! We had Mountain Laurel in the woods behind where we used to live. It was always a good place to find butterflies and dragonflies.

  5. Thanks, Juliet. If it was raining so hard right now, I would be out with my camera taking more photos of raindrops.

    1. No, it is a wild plant found here in Maine called Meadowsweet. I think it is a form of spirea. The flowers are the same. I was lucky enough to have both Meadowsweet and Steeplebush in the field behind the last house we lived in before moving to town. There is a new photo of it in the sidebar.

    1. Some plants hold water better than others, don't they?
      I love rain details.

  12. Nice haiku and lovely beads of water...
    A few days ago I was driving through thick fog so many kilometres... Fog always makes me feel different.

    1. Yes, that is true. I wonder what it is about fog that does that to some of us? I used to go out to my garden in the early morning on foggy days because I loved the experience so much.

  13. It's interesting to note that drops left by fog are not the same as drops left by rain, smaller I think. Fog can be beautiful or scary, depending. Lovely haiku and photo.

    1. Yes, you are right about fog drops. Dew also leaves behind a different look. I guess I am mostly a detail photographer. It sounds like you might be, too.
