Dew Drops

Posted in Nature, Photography by leahyetter on June 1, 2011

Saturday was sunny but it quickly turned into rain and hail that evening. It hailed off and on for a couple of hours and then rained throughout the night. It was foggy and misty all of Sunday and our plans for a hike and picnic in the hills were foiled. We were both stir crazy so we put on our rain gear and went for a walk around the ranch.

Dandelions took a beating from the hail.

The grass is green from all of the moisture and the meadows were very boggy.

Sparkly droplets were everywhere…

…like the shiny diamonds of dew on this mustard weed.

The ferocious Wyoming winds blew all day Monday and yesterday morning. I was finally able to take a hike in the hills yesterday and it’s mostly dried out and everything is so green. I think summer is finally here. Maybe. I’ll let you know later this week. 🙂

    And by “summer” you mean….temps into the 70s or 80s during the day? Sigh. Wish I had that.

    Leah please send us some of that moisture. It is over 100 here day after day and waht little rain we do get does not keep the grass green. On the good side, the grass does not grow so it does not have to be cut. lol
