With the whole center of the country in a drought, it was delightful to come out this morning and see water hanging from all of our plants here in southwestern Minnesota due to the morning fog.  I hope you enjoy these foggy picture as much as I did.

Tiny water drops hung from each needle on this small Norway pine.

Delicate water drops graced the spider web on our bridge railing.

Corn leaves were gathering bits of fog and congregating them into water drops big enough to funnel down the stalk to the roots.

Tiny hairs on alfalfa leaves were holding on to smaller bits of fog.  Notice the large crack in the dirt.  It will take lots of rain to fill them.

Tree leaves were gathering fog into drops that would cascade to the ground whenever the wind would rustle their leaves.

It was indeed an enchanted  fog.
