After the rain

It has been raining a lot last week. When it finally stopped raining for a while I went outside and got really close to the leaves of the plants and trees in my backyard. I did not realize there was so much to see! It was fascinating to see the raindrops, like little crystal balls, sitting on the leaves and hanging on the twigs. In this picture you see a close up of my japanese maple tree with its beautiful red leaves.
