Dewdrops - A Pic A Day in May #8

Recent mornings have been dew-soaked. While the roads and paths are dry, the grasses and plants are so wet with dew that Callie comes home from her walks soaking wet. And, as an added bonus, her wet fur picks up sand and dirt that has to be washed out of her coat before she can come back into the house. She's quite used to the daily "undercarriage wash;" it's part of her walk routine.

Dewdrops cling to the tips of the tall grasses in the vineyard.

It's only on extremely hot and/or dry days, or extremely cold ones when everything is frozen, that Callie doesn't need a rinse off when she gets back from a walk. We're so lucky to have that shower in the utility room!

  12. Thanks to all of you for the encouraging comments. It's funny, I almost didn't post this photo because I thought it could have been better... I was hand-holding the camera (no tripod) so I couldn't increase the depth-of-field to bring more of the drops into focus.

  13. The photograph is fabulous! If I were you I'd enlarge it, print it off properly, frame it and hang it on the wall :-)
