Decorated by the morning dew

This year there are very few scouring-rush showing up and they are very small but they are decorated every morning just as they always are in spring.

  2. Those drops of morning dew are like little light bulbs on a tree. So pretty. I love close-ups like these. And I continue to marvel at the beauty of nature, thanks to your photos, Montucky!

  3. Beautiful! It’s the little things like them that make living this life such a pleasure and I wish more people could see things like them.

  5. I certainly remember these. Seeing them again isn’t at all boring or repetitive. It’s even more of a delight, partly because the thrill of recognition has been added. It’s like seeing old friends pop up in the meadows in spring, I suppose. Who gets tired of seeing “the same old plants” over and over? Not me!

    • That’s just how I feel about seeing the new things of spring; a fresh sense of amazement at their form and color and patterns and relief and joy that they have once again appeared on the scene.

    • Thanks Julie! I look forward to the short period of time each year when they look like this. I wonder if it is just incidental or whether perhaps a unique survival strategy is involved with it.

    • They seem so very simple, but I still wonder how those little drops form where they do. They last only a few minutes in certain mornings when everything must be just right.
