Beauty is in the Eye of the Beholder

Water on a Collard Leaf

 
As I was washing the collard greens my neighbor gave me, the beads of water on the leaf caught my eye.  As you already know, I will take a photo of almost anything, and this was no exception.

Amazing how it beaded up. They must be waterproof.

Very nice, Pat.... We certainly have learned to be more observant these days, haven't we? I think Blogging has done that for me. I never EVER paid any attention to weeds before now!!!! ha

Hugs,
Betsy

I have collards, kale, and mustard greens, in my garden, all of which enjoy raw in salads for supper each night. Of course, eating them steamed and with beans, cornbread, and a baked potato is darned good too.

Stunning! I never fail to marvel at the beauty of nature. Those droplets look like fine diamonds.

Truth. I find beauty in places most people don't - abandoned factory buildings, for instance, have always held a certain appeal for me - so I understand. But, this is beautiful by most normal standards! Nice.

When I looked at the "thumbnail" image of your photo, before seeing it full size, it looked to me like a picture of rolling green hill country with hedges! Amazing the "worlds within worlds" that there are around us. You can imagine what a grand and happy home that leaf would be to a little caterpillar, or how different the top of a large tree would seem to the birds that lived there. Never tasted a collard before, is it anything like chard (what we would call silverbeet here)?
Nice photo.
