April showers are normally the reality for Scotland but, like other parts of the world, we have had an unusually dry April. We have had light misty rain on and off since the weekend but nothing substantial. Early this morning I went out with my camera to capture the droplets on my plants before they dried up again.
Patterns and sizes of raindrops varied depending on the surface of the leaves as you can see below. I particularly liked the way the hairs on the meconopsis almost spiked the droplets. I found it amusing to see droplets on the ladybird too!
