Solar Eclipse in the Garden

While watering the garden this morning, I watched the solar eclipse reflected on the lawn.  Hundreds of tiny crescents sparkled through the leaves of the apple tree.

The taller gary oak beside the driveway cast shade with similar crescents peaking through the leaves.

I’d heard about this indirect way of watching the eclipse, but honestly, I still don’t “get” how it works.

As the moon shifted & revealed the sun, the magic morphed back into plain old dappled shade.
