Embracing the rain...

Quick-silver on Ginko biloba leaves

Didn't someone say that if you can't beat them, join them? So foolish. I've never thought joining one's adversaries is a great idea, however strong they might be. But sometimes one needs to do exceptions, so instead of cursing the ever-present rain, I decided to embrace it. And despite difficulties in keeping my camera dry, there seemed to be something to that old saying, after all.

A magnifying splash on velvety Geranium renardii leaves.

Tradescantias with little drops lining the edges of their leaves; how did they arrange themselves so neatly? 

A Tropaeolum speciosum, climbing nasturtium vine, with a string of pearls. Maybe it wanted to be pretty even after the flowers have faded?

Tradescantians droppformationer är verkligen spectacular!!

Ha det gott, och vet, att efter regn kommer sol - eller mer regn!

Ha det gott!

Jag tyckte att dropparna såg ut som synchronized swimmers, på något sätt :-) Och efter regn, så här kommer det oftast mer regn, så här års, men det är bara att vänja sig! Ha det gott, Ruben du med!
