Macro Morning Dew

It’s time for another Macro Sunday!   Yesterday was such a beautiful day, I went early to the Wegerzehn Gardens in Dayton.   Though the sun was bright, it had not yet reached through to the gardens near the woods.   The morning dew was so heavy on the plants and so beautiful with the first rays of the sun just hitting, that I took over 100 photos!   Can’t share them all here, but want  to share some of my favorites.

looks like a tropical river

actually the center of this big plant

this lamb's ear really looks like wet wool to me

The gardens here always make me feel so at peace and filled with love.   I can never visit enough.

If you like macro, be sure to visit Studio Waterstone who hosts a group of amatuer photographers that just love to take a close-up look at the world.

    • This is one of my most favorite places to go and just BE. It fills me with peace and happiness every time I go there. My grandchild had her wedding here in the English Garden. There is also a rose Garden, a Children’s Garden and an Herb Garden as well a a stick sculpture and walkways through the grounds and a wooden bridge through the woods. It’s one of the best places in Dayton.

    • The whole view seemed to change when I took pictures of plants in the sun. The heavy dew added texture and dimension.

    • I am asking myself why I have no lamb’s ear at home in my back yard. It’s such a simple plant it adds a softness to the landscape.
