    Have you ever noticed how distinctive are the patterns of water drops on leaves?

    Earlier this summer on a rainy morning I took these pictures of garden plants. What are they? I thought it was a good time to post this because it's raining again & I can go outside & check to see if you have the right answers.

    Glass brain,

    I think you've come up with a new sport - watching rain on leaves ! Difficult for me to participate as we have only had two short showers in the last 90 days.

    I'm not too envious on having to miss out on this one!!
    Ciao

    Yeah, I've had far too much experience of watching rain on leaves over this summer!
