Outside our kitchen window we have that tall wooden planter that I wrote about a couple of months back. At present the only things in it are one potted cutting of my favourite Dogwood, and a Purple Sage plant.
Gazing idly out of the window while doing some washing-up I noticed the Sage sparkling in the afternoon sunlight. On closer inspection, this is what I saw:
Isn't that amazing? The leaf clusters look like brooches covered in diamonds.
This must be an optical illusion, but to me the central raindrop on this one looks to have straight edges - just like a cut diamond!
What I want to know is, why don't the drops on the vertical leaves fall off? Haven't they heard of gravity?
