Slightly obsessed with the clarity of droplets

As you can see from the photo below we are back into a spiral of rain showers, drizzle and whiteouts. We thought we had come through our wet autumn - but not so - rain etc will be with us for quite a few more days.

One of the silver linings is that the plants are getting bathed in clear gentle rain. Many plants and cobwebs are holding droplets like special crystal jewels. Most of the photos in this blog are from the back deck and in the orchid house.

The droplets are not always easy to capture with the iPhone as it wants to focus on things behind. Still it is grand to see the clear refreshing beauty.

And when the sun shines in the early morning we are gifted with strong rainbows in the kitchen.
