There was no soil erosion or standing puddles to put stress on the root systems of the growing garden greenery. Foliage shows up so much clearer after a rain. All the subtle shades of green standout and shine.
All foliage isn't green though.
Purples and reds pop out from among the verdant leafiness.
Some of the bromeliads are putting out new life while others are just beginning to bloom.
Last night's rain collected in a reflective pool within the cup of this bromeliad. Bright fuschia colors the inner leaves indicating the bloom that can't be seen inside the watery center. Soon there will be new pups growing beside this mother plant.
The variegated leaves with red shooting through them is one of my favorite combos of color.
There is nothing quite like a well-watered garden.
