I was looking through some photos from earlier this year and found one that I’d meant to post back in June but hadn’t. I like it, and even though it’s a few months late, I hope you like it too. Better late than never, right?
Prairie spiderwort (Tradescantia occidentalis) and morning dew drops in the Nebraska Sandhills.
Spiderwort is a gorgeous prairie wildflower with a name that might sound off-putting to some. Of course, other common names for the plant include snot weed and cow slobber (both related to the clear sticky goo that comes out of the leaves when you break them). Maybe spiderwort isn’t so bad, huh?
Beautiful! When I had a garden they were in it. Love the way the image is flipped in the dewdrop.
Very nice picture ! I find it close to abstract painting… except for the water drop which is so sharply defined and so perfect. One tries to guess what it reflects exactly, which is a funny exercise.
Loved the photo and got a good chuckle from snot weed and cow slopper, have never met them, but can’t wait.
