"I rose, and found the shining dew ..."

     (With thanks to Robert Louis Stevenson.)

     This morning I made it up to the deck shortly after the sun was up. My attention was captured by the dewdrops on the leaves of one of my willow-leaf figs (Ficus salicaria:) they caught the sunlight in a way that was simultaneously subtle and fascinating. I hope you enjoy these pictures, even tho I admit they can't do full
justice to the beauty of the scene!

Sunlight coming in from 2:00, on an imaginary clock with 12:00 straight ahead.
Notice the droplets lining the leaf edges, too.
This was another occasion when I was reminded that the Creator is a greater artist than any human can ever be!

  1. Yup and when I see this I am reminded of that beautiful song....I walk in the garden alone while the dew is still on the roses and the voice I hear singing oh so dear
