A couple of weeks before we moved, I was walking the dogs in the backyard during a short respite between bouts of rain. There is some kind of a pine tree at the far edge of the yard, I don’t know what kind … only that it has drooping limbs, and it caught my eye because of the rain that had accumulated on its limbs. The drops just sat there, in perfectly round little beads, clinging daintily to the needles. From a distance, the shimmer almost looked like frost. Now, I’m not great at taking pictures, and all I had was my cell phone, but I couldn’t walk away without trying to capture such a beautiful — and cool — sight. Mother Nature. She sure is something.
