umbrellas, raindrops and plant leaves

Depends on your perspective

Today’s weather was wet, which caused me to think of something. Ever notice that during a class change, when it’s raining, we curve our umbrellas downward to keep the rain off us? Then, did you ever notice how plants’ leaves tend to curve upward to catch the raindrops and keep them? It must be the difference between a temporary inconvenience and a matter of survival.
