WW: Raindrops on Rose of Sharon Flowers

Raindrops on Flowers Macro
"It will never rain roses: when we want to have more roses we must plant more trees."
- George Eliot

The last of the rose of Sharon petals fell a few days ago, but not before I photographed the purple flowers after a late summer rain.

  1. I popped in from Oh My Heartsie. It's been a while since I linked up. I always enjoy your flower photos. I also took pictures of the flowers in my garden (this morning) with water droplets, but mine wasn't rain, rather the sprinkler system. :)

  13. Lovely photo. When I first saw your post title, the song "My Favorite Things" popped into my head - "Raindrops on Roses and whiskers on kittens". Darn, now I'll be humming this all day. :D

  19. Lovely effect of the raindrops of the velvety petals. Here's a little bit of trivia for you:
    In Ireland that plant is known as Mallow & comes in many varieties, some wild. Our Rose of Sharon is a short herbaceous shrubby plant with smooth bright green leaves & buttercup yellow/golden flowers with red stamens. After the petals drop a red fruit much like a rosehip develops.
