Just some photos I took while out walking. Anything with drops always gets my attention, even though drops aren’t as rare in Illinois as in Arizona.

I like the shape of these berries and the contrast between the dried leaf on the left and the berries.

Milkweed. What’s not to like? They contrast prickly and soft as well as attracting monarch butterflies. But they do reproduce rather quickly so if you have some, you’ll have to keep pulling up the new ones.

Dew drop in

Just had one of those lovely evenings where Windows decides to update without notice, then takes three hours to get me back online after which it’s perilously near bedtime and I still don’t have a post. Sigh. Just in case you think we never get any moisture in Arizona, this photo proves you wrong. It’s actually a rain drop rather than dew but I couldn’t think of anything clever for a title using “drop” and Windows is still acting up, so I’m signing off.

To those of you who know we moved to Arizona over a year ago, it will be obvious that this shot was NOT since that move but taken back in Illinois a few years ago. This might be the entire number of drops in one rain here…and I’m not really joking. Sometimes our “rain” is just a smattering of drops so scant that I could almost count them. But no matter, just enjoy the plethora of drops that makes this bit of plant and spiderweb appear to be wearing a shawl of diamonds.
