I only had to step outside my front door this morning for some image inspiration! This is a photograph of a Mullein – Verbascum – leaf covered in morning dew.

Mullein leaves are delightfully fuzzy even without a coating of dew and these new leaves have sprung up in one of the Summer planters. The strange thing is: these plants shouldn’t be throwing up new leaves at this time of year. It’s another example of unusual things happening in the plant world as a result of the overall warm Autumn we’ve having. Even the beautiful Nigellas are blooming again. It’s all very odd.

    1. Thank you Littleskew! I know what you mean – I was tempted to entitle the post something associated with ice as it looks so much like icy frost! There is something about the feeling of stepping through the wardrobe into a strange world in Nature at the moment. The nights are rapidly drawing in and it is chilling down but Spring and Summer plants are springing up.


      1. It must look so magical; keep your eyes out for a fawn ๐Ÿ™‚

        Can’t wait until we get a bit of snow over here.
        Keep the magic coming; it makes me feel warm ๐Ÿ™‚


    1. No – although it looks very much like it! It was water droplets from overnight; because the leaves are so thick and furry, the water sits on top in hundreds of tiny droplets!


    1. Thank you eremophila! It was wonderful to open the front door this morning to be greeted with these droplet-textured leaves. I always think it would be nice to be wrapped in them when it’s cold ๐Ÿ™‚


    1. Thank you Sandy. I have attempted to photograph the dry leaves before but they didn’t come out the way I had hoped. I took a few this morning and this was the best one for droplets and texture.
