        Looks healthy. What is it?



        A couple of surprises here ...


        Brugmansia X ... I did it from seed in the Spring and have no idea what colour it is ...

        Solanum muricatum (Pepino doce) which I was struggling with, has perked up with the rain and is flowering ...

                      Thank you Victoria and yes it's scented, some more than others.

                        I've been taking macro shots of some of the plants on the balcony today, here are a few:

                        Pansies make such great subjects for macro shots, especially when they are covered in raindrops which look like little diamonds!

                            That's the beauty of Pansies & Violas as they come into their own during the cold months of the year! :)

                              I remember growing so called winter pansies years ago and being disappointed that they never flowered in winter.
                              Maybe our milder winters make things a bit different now, not grown them for a long time.
                              Looking good @Balc .
