Raindrops on Sweaters?

There was a new patch of something growing by the deck at my in-laws this summer.

These curious stems popped up from amidst the leaves.
Sage colored leaves that stayed close to the ground.

When I got close up to the leaves to catch the water droplets
after the sprinklers had done their thing in the morning...

all I could think of was that Sound of Music tune.
The one that starts out, "Raindrops on roses."

But the closer I got to these "leaves" the more they looked like they'd been hand knit.
I started humming,
"Raindrops on Sweaters..."
