  1. Lovely raindrops but I got 0 out of 4 on plant identification.

    • The last two are Alchemilla Mollis or Lady’s Mantle. The beads of water on these leaves were considered by alchemists to be the purest form of water. They used them in their quest to turn base metal into gold, hence the name Alchemilla! Maybe true, maybe not!

  4. Love the raindrops! I gave up with hostas as the slugs were too fond of them. How do you keep your slug-free?

  6. Truly refreshing images. We had a nice (and very loud) thunderstorm event about 24 hours ago. Plenty of soil moisture now.

  9. Lovely to see what you’ve been up to. My time at the computer has been limited as my eyes get tired rather quickly staring at the screen. Probably the least fun part of adding extra years. Am overdue for cataract surgery because of the virus thing.

    Bet you’re missing all your travels a great deal. Found a book I thought I’d recommend remembering how you enjoyed your travels to some of our National Parks: “Leave Only Footprints” by Conor Knighton. If you can find it or get your hands on it.

    Hope you and your family are all well and staying healthy.

    • Thanks Gunta. Surprisingly we haven’t really missed travelling and are enjoying our time at home. Realistically we have settled for a long period without overseas visits, we just couldn’t face the horror of airports or flying.
      Hope you get that eye operation soon.
      Thanks for the recommendation.

  10. Beautiful. I went outside just a few moments ago and saw a raindrop on a leaf and I was going to photograph it. But yours are better.

  11. We’ve had a few brief showers but no proper rain for ages. Very unusual for the west of Scotland. I learned a word though, petrichor, for the scent after the first rain for a while.
