This is amazing! We were cleaning up the garden, and I looked down at these shoots or buds coming out of the ground, and saw sparkles like diamonds within a number of the buds. What? So I got the close up lens and investigated. There were water drops within the petals but because of some kind of surface tension, all the drops were sitting there as droplets, apparently not wetting the buds at all. Look at the tiny round water drop sitting by itself. Amazing. I posted a larger image so please click on it to see more detail. Someday I will even find out what kind of plant this is.
