The Colours on my Balcony

It's this time of the year which I like when the sun is shining - but only then. The colours of nature are exploding once more - so many different shades which try to compete.

This year I decided to do something about the greys which are usually dominant on my balcony at this point and I planted Chrysanthemum in every corner. Now it looks like this:

Colour Feast continues: Green man-made and natural Crystals

It is time to continue the colour series: GREEN. I want you to drool over these lovely green colours that nature has created in crystals and also some man-made crystals which can be equally inspirational. These green shades make me want to take my brushes immediately and go to the easel to create something with these shades or imagine a lake, hidden deep in the forests, with waters just as these greens - wouldn't it be devine to dive into those?
