I hope this will meet with your approval. These photos from Julia and Bev inspired me to give this topic it's own thread.
Every one out taking photos of rain/water on Sempervivum. Hurray!

These photos are amazing. I love them all.
It is raining here today. Think I will go out and see what I can find. Hurray!

Jojoe, I'm sure you'd be more than happy to get rid of your rain. Sorry it's been so miserable there for you. Sad Hopefully lots of sunshine is on it's way.

Lynn, good idea to break those pictures out into it's own thread! Hurray!

Waiting for your 'Rain on Semps' photos Jelinda. Thumbs up

Yes, thank you so much for the inspiration Julia. Group hug

I just came back in from taking photos. Unfortunately most of the rain was dried up. Sad
But I did get a few photos to share.

The rain is gone for now and it was 50 degree's at 6:30 this morning.I'm wondering how this drop in temperature is going to affect the color of my semp's.I looked back i my pictures and did find one from back in the spring.
