Again after rain - crystal droplets

On Monday I took a walk on the block in the morning after a night of light rain - we measured 4mm. The morning light was grey but it allowed the wet surfaces and droplets to glisten.

And the wind had blown flowers and petals here and there such as the bougainvillaea that ended up in the rusted fire pit filled with water and the purple petal on the wet wood chip mulch.

Orchids; and a view of the terrace where I have attached 10 new orchids to the trees.

  1. Glorious colour on your block! And then the two final views are so delicate and mystical. Always a delight to see your photos, Barry.
