Lady’s Mantle Raindrops

Raindrops on Lady’s Mantle

After a few days last week being the hottest place in the country, we’re probably the coldest now, with fresh snow well down the hills last night.

The leaves of Lady’s mantle are coated in fine hairs giving it a silvery appearance.  This fine down also holds raindrops, great for artistic effect.  This was taken in a sudden burst of sunshine after (and before)  a heavy shower!

“Of scenes of Nature, fields and mountains,

Of skies so beauteous after a storm,

and at night the moon so unearthly bright,

… I dream, I dream, I dream.”

– Walt Whitman.
