After the rain…

Not much is happening on the balcony, since I’m trying not to meddle with the plants too much, and just let them grow for a while.

Here are a few photos taken after this morning’s rain.

Very nice photos. I think gardens are always prettiest right after a rain... especialy those sempervivums! Nice cropping.

They look so refreshing with water on them. I should learn not to meddle so much with my plants too. :)

Your balcony plants are looking wonderful. Especially so fresh looking after the rain. The Lobelia and Dusty Miller really compliment each other - the bright colors mixed with the gray/green. Very nice!

I love the foliage on that geranium. You combos make me want to get outside and start planting mine. Think that's just what I will do here in a few minutes!
