Surface Tension

Being inhabitants of this watery planet with our particular atmospheric pressure and gravity and other physical factors that effect the way a fluid behaves, we're used to the forms water takes on.  Maybe we are indifferent to the coolness of raindrops we are so used to them.

Today there's evidence of water's willingness to cling to things all over the garden.

Drops line up on acacia leaves and a stem of gaura.

A film of water shellacs the petals of tagetes lemmonii.

Domes of water cling to spent feverfew blossoms, turning them into tiny gazing balls.

Rain.  Good.
