Weekly Photo Challenge: Reflections

After yesterday’s downpour, my plants were adorned with lingering raindrops. I liked how this Passiflora belotti leaf caught the reflection of barely emerging sunlight:

The overflowing “tank” of my Neoregelia Spectabilis  mirrored the Bauhinia tree above it: note the reflection of branches on the tank’s righthand side:

Reflection is not just physics and lightwaves; it describes behavioural elements, too ➡ hover your mouse over the picture to see what I mean! HA!

    • I do! In fact, I took so many photos of raindrops on so many leaves I had a tough time chosing which to post! In the end, I opted for a plant I’d never shown on the blog before.
      Thanks for always being so supportive of my posts. I REALLY appreciate it!

  1. There’s a sense of magic in drops of water on plants. Your photos are lovely and perfect for the theme. 🙂
    I’m curious, what was the mouse-over supposed to make happen? My Firefox 17.0.1 browser didn’t show anything different except for the edge around the photo turned gray. Reckon I need an add-on or need to turn something on in my browser to make it work. I look forward to your reply.

    • If you hover over the picture it gives you a “tooltip title” that reads “this passiflora is setting flowers! What a reflection on my green thumb 😉 ”
      On 11/29 WP made some big changes to the image uploading/editting process. (you prob already know this but if not you can read about it here:
      It hasn’t worked all that well for some users and certain browsers. You can see some of the support forum questions here

      • Oh okay. lol I read that. I don’t know why it didn’t register in my mind that it was a new feature.
        Yep, I haven’t quite mastered the new changes. Thanks for the links.

    • Thank you so much!
      I’ve been to your blog a few times via my Samsung’s WP App lately, but haven’t had time to comment. May I suggest you put the virtual coffee on? I’ve noticed some VERY impressive things on your end, too and am enroute right now for a proper visit! 🙂

    • Glad to see the tooltip I put there worked! The media changes of 11/29 threw my blog into a spin…slooooowwwwww uploading, titles not “sticking” and all manner of layout atrocities! Hopefully the developers have gotten things under control before the next time I post!

  2. First, what wonderful plants you grow on this blog! I love the reflections. Second, thank you so much for paying our blog a visit and making such nice comments!
    Hope your holiday season is a terrific one!

  3. There’s so much to see hidden in the reflection of a raindrop, isn’t there? Too many people have lost the skill of slowing down to look closely at their surroundings!

  4. I am always fascinated with raindrops and dewdrops. Seeing then early in the morning or after the rain just creates the joyful, hopeful feeling. Beautiful images. Happy Holidays to you and your family.
