Crystalline droplets adorn the junctions of peduncle (the main stem of the inflorescence) and pedicels (stems bearing the terminal blooms). Closed buds–with their promises of floral beauty and pollinator sustenance–echo the water droplets in spherical contrast to the peduncle and pedicels.
The water jewels are ephemeral, soon eclipsed by opened blooms.
I’m delighted to join in today with Anna’s Wednesday Vignette. Pop on over and check out other garden and nature musings.
