sunshine and rain, marbles made of water

Rate: 3 Flag

A classic Vermont afternoon: full sun and rain, simultaneously. Actually, it’s the first decent batch of afternoon sun we’ve had in d-a-y-s, so even though I was more of a mind to put my feet up with a glass of wine, I headed out to see what there was to see. But first, I’ll show you the one bit of sun we had a few days ago, in the morning:

Fast-forward to this afternoon:

Spiderwort! I had to scrounge around for it behind the ferns.

An opportunistic vine of one-seeded burr cucumber, taking on a raspberry leaf. Both are invasives, so let’s just watch them duke it out.

Wild rose.

Raindrops on Indian hemp. Or, as Best Beloved just commented, “a marble made of water”. That boy’s a genius.

An anemone that’s lost all its petals already.

Honeysuckle babies. These will turn orange, then red.

The mail contained a treat today:

It’s the medal from the half marathon I just did. I asked my bro’ to mail it to me, since there was no way the TSA agents would let me take something with a corkscrew on it on a plane.

Congratulations on your half marathon!!! I just completed a 10K at Hospital Hill, but am still training for a marathon. Most likely, I will run a half marathon instead of a marathon. That would make more sense to me. Do you wear a camel bak when running long distance? What shoes do you wear? I just purchased Glycerin 10 made by Brooks. It felt like running on sponges this evening! By the way, I love the rain drop photos. They are beautiful!
Wonderful photos and medal. Inspiring. That marble of rain is Big!
Raindrops are a marvel indeed and the images cαρture such a difficult work.Great work!!
