The week of 'White Dew on the Grass'

Lady's Mantle is a dew catcher

This is the time of 'White Dew on the Grass' in Japan

Sept 8 - 12
Microseason 43: 白露 Hakuro (White dew)
 Now is when you notice white beads of dew in early morning. They say 'on grass' but I see it on flowers and leaves too.  
Dew appears between summer and fall when the temperatures drop during the night and moisture in the air solidifies. A magical time indeed.
Like jewels on the flowers - dew drops glisten


  1. I had never heard that expression before. I will remember this. It is a magical time of year. I always enjoy this time when the temps begin to moderate. It seems like a sigh of relief from Mother Nature.
