On The Edge Of Elephant Ears

Let the rain kiss you. Let the rain beat upon your head with silver liquid drops. Let the rain sing you a lullaby. ~Langston Hughes

The Rain by William Henry Davies

I hear leaves drinking rain; I hear rich leaves on top
Giving the poor beneath Drop after drop;
'Tis a sweet noise to hear
These green leaves drinking near.
And when the Sun comes out,
 After this Rain shall stop
, A wondrous Light will fill Each dark, round drop;
 I hope the Sun shines bright; 'Twill be a lovely sight.  

You can avoid having ulcers by adapting to the situation: If you fall in the mud puddle, check your pockets for fish. ~Author Unknown

There are few things prettier than raindrops on plants. Beautiful macros Sandra and I the quotes fit perfectly with your photos.

Workaround or is the problem fixed?

LOVE the header, the leaf edge, and the drops!! You are joining the ranks of Judy and Regina, I see!!! Try as I may, I cannot get good drops of anything yet. For one thing, we have nothing in our yard for drops to sit on or hang from, and by the time I go somewhere, everything is dried up. I love the two pictures where it looks like two different shades of green, as well. And I adore Langston hughes, love his quote. I have several poems by him. I want more raindrops!! Or dewdrops!

Beautiful pictures, Sandra. I'm so glad your pictures are loading now... I love seeing raindrops on leaves... SO pretty!!!!!

We are desperate AGAIN for rain here. We had to water everything in the yard today... It's supposed to get cooler here this weekend ---I HOPE...

Keep those great pictures coming.

I can just feel the humidity in the air. You've captured these drops beautifully. I think the first image is my favorite. Love the drops on the edge.
