Adopted plants

My friend has left the country to go live elsewhere and she had a balcony oof gorgeous plants. I wanted them so badly, but her balcony was four times bigger than mine and mine is already full! So, I said I'd take five; she gave me eight.
However, it got me thinking how some of my favourite plants are ones I'd inherited from others. It's lovely looking around the balcony and seeing the different plants/people in my life and it brings a lot of joy.
One of them in a Jasmine (I'm going to have to look after that one as I find the Jasmines are very suseptable to  insect infestations), which has been sending off a gorgeous scent in the evenings. Three are a type of water bulb which I want to research and the others have variegated yellow and green leaves. Very nice. 
The only problem is, I can't sit out on my balcony as it's full of plants!!


My new plants buffeted by the morning winds.
