Rain Drops in the Conifer Garden

I took a walk through the conifer garden at Mission Oaks Gardens this morning after a night of heavy rain showers. This conifer garden is always incredibly beautiful but that beauty becomes alluring on a cloudy, misty, wet morning.

I strolled up to the unusual little Gingko biloba ‘Thelma Broom’ and couldn’t help noticing all the reflective little raindrops that had collected on the leaves.

Nature had drawn me in once again using her magic. I wandered around the garden for another half hour looking at how the rain drops graced the needles on the different species of conifers growing there.
