More Green


This is my second offering for Project Green, a photo challenge to capture and post something green. It is difficult to do such a project and neglect the most obvious and abundant source of 'green' on the planet - plants! The New Zealand Flax is a wonderful and large structural plant. I have three in my garden, one red and two green. It's sharp looking leaves contrast nicely with softer rounded shapes of the other plants and the delicate dissected leaves of the Japanese Maples.

BEAUTIFUL! I love this picture...! Flax is quiye popular here in Los Angeles----Particularly the Red....It is such a graceful plant, isn't it?

Lots of good things here in this image: I love the green. The lines created are great. And like others have noticed, I love the blue showing through in the background. Well done.

Lovely photo. I like the blue sky peaking through and the light and shadow. Nicely done.

I like the green. I was thinking that photo would look good in black and white, as well.

Cheers.

lovely shot! I really like the angle of that plant.

I too would love to see what the red looks like.

Hi Bobkat. We love the picture! Sorry we haven't been to visit in a while. Mom has been very busy and we aren't too good at typing without her help. We will try to be back on a more regular basis ...
