Green Uncertainties

I have all these fern-like plants around my house. From far, they are not too exciting to look at but get closer and they become a jungle filled with ominous possibility. To the naked eye, the bigger and finer leaves appear to be two different plants; they even have different green hues. Up close, they … Continue reading Green Uncertainties

Gothic Leanings

Early this Spring, I took several pictures of the dead milkweed plants in a nearby field. I've always found these beautiful and used to use them in flower arrangements and other wall-hanging sculptures. The grey tones really appeal to me, even before I started to understand Wabi-Sabi aesthetics. They normally last well into the Summer, … Continue reading Gothic Leanings

Contrasts and Compliments

We've been wandering around the neighbourhood for walks to break out of the isolation blues and marvelling at the different plants we see. I would love to build a hedge of this particular bush. The rich, deep red of the flowers contrasts and compliments the deep green of the leaves. Similar to the effect seen … Continue reading Contrasts and Compliments

Just So… Beautiful

It's really easy to walk by certain gifts from Mother Nature and take them for granted. Macro photography has been allowing me to, well, stop and smell the roses. There is so much beauty always around us that I can't help but feel my soul soaring in happiness and gratitude for it. The fragility of … Continue reading Just So… Beautiful

Transformations with Life #25: “Reaching Out”

The more I look at it, the more the green really contrasts beautifully with the brown pot. Again a slightly different type of ivy... it's in the coloration of the leaves. it might have been my imagination, but it felt like this one started growing as soon as it was transplanted to this pot. I'm … Continue reading Transformations with Life #25: “Reaching Out”
