Morning dew and post-season blooms

Yesterday's walk at Walnut Creek was bejeweled. Dew drops on the long grasses, caught in the morning sun...gorgeous! Also, the moon stayed visible the whole time. My main complaint is that my iphone doesn't take the same quality photos as it did this spring. An update between then and now changed the touchscreen focus to touchscreen zoom, and I haven't figured out the new trick to focus. Anybody?

In the backyard, the mystery sage and obedient plant are blooming...at the same time! That's a first (sage usually stops by early summer). And the obedient plant is putting out a lot of buds along its stalk for a second round of flowers. A little scraggly, but I love having them.

i love that first photo--it looks like it should be on the cover of a book of nature poetry.

Thanks! Hard to go wrong with the morning light lately.
