The Beauty of Rain Drops


It rained again last night! Everything was wet this morning, but the sun was already making his way through the clouds. While I walked through my garden, I noticed the rain drops on the poppy buds. They looked beautiful, and the morning light also brought out the tiny hairs on the stems and buds of the poppies.





I couldn't stop taking pictures. This time it wasn't the color or the beautiful shape of the poppies that caught my eye, but all I wanted to capture was this early stage of poppy life, the bud.




Seriously, who can resist this kind of beauty?

Absolutely gorgeous. And how nice to learn that someone else takes a daily perigrination to see what has come up, is in bud, has flowered...

Beautiful captures of the rain drops, Carola! I love the way the stems bend before they blossom -- so graceful. I was delighted with the rain last night, which cleaned the air and watered the garden. Looks like we are in for a dry spell now.

You certainly have skills with the camera. I think all the raindrops came out just for you.
