On the morning of this image, the meadowsweet was still covered with rain.  The drops made the meadowsweet spikes look a little pink from a distance, as they magnified the red centers of the flowers.  The Abnaki, Algonquin and Iroquois used meadowsweet for a variety of ailments.  The hollow stems have been used as pipettes or for pipe stems.
