This is the view from my back door of what should be all green at this time of the year. For the past few weeks it has been all brown and ugly due to the cold winter (it is still 52 and 20 degrees below normal) . I noticed new leaves on the banana trees and decided to look around the yard for new green.
this is new green elephant ear plants, only about 12 inches tall. I sat the camera on the ground and when i turned around was staring at yesterdays Mystery Photo.
and here is your answer.
it is the flower turning into a seed pod. Isn't it odd how taking a small portion of an object completely changes our perspecitve on what it is. Your guesses made me smile. 2 dried leaves from Snapper and Barbara (close, very close) 1 rain puddling on?Addicted to the Click (very close and true) and 3 something over the head to keep rain off Ginny, Betsy, and DawnTreader.
I fooled everyone because it was NOT from my trip to the plantation. Gotcha!
This is our powder puff bush, with the rain from last week, it is covered in bright pink powder puffs. the redish leaves in the middle of this photo (click on photo to see the leaves) is all new growth. On this bush new growth comes in red, then turns dark green overnight.
Thanks for all the guesses! Aint Bloggin Fun?
