DAY 28 (3 MAY) – European smoketree (cotinus coggygria) (Farnham, England)
These raindrops are almost as twinkley as Sacha Distel’s eyes. I’m mesmerised by the reflections in them. Like perfect miniature paperweights.
I find them more interesting than this smoketree, though I like its colour. So I’m giving them a Latin name I’ve made up – but it could be close: casus pluvium. (Apologies to Rees-Mogg supporters, though I doubt they’ll be reading my blog.)
