    Sacred Bamboo 1

    Wombat - returning to my , as you call it, 'Favourite Plant' - yes it is interesting to watch
    the progress! BTW - it's a Sacred Bamboo.
    BE - Love your celebration leaf - very colourfull & nicely done.
    Gerard - brilliant examples - keep them coming.
    Wall - ditto
    in fact everone - keep it up - I could never have believed the leaves would have 'rustled up' such enthusiasm.
    Took some pictures this evening - pretty low light - but never mind -
    here's the first...

    Also - the leaves are changing colours again - they were quite red last year and they are turning from green to red...

    Thanks Wall and Geoff C for more excellent shots of leaves.

    Thanks also Geoff for the name of your plant - sacred bamboo. I really like the series of shots of its development - it feels like one of the family.

    Here's one of just ordinary bamboo after the rain stopped.

    regards

    Thanks for the kind words everyone. Geoff, that is an interesting "Sacred Bamboo Review". Wombat, that is a nice jumble of leaves, and a drop shot to boot.

    So, has anyone ever wondered how leaves manage to just keep hanging? Simple, they are stuck to a clothes line:

    Thanks to everyone for their new contributions.

    gstafleu - great idea - the clothes line - and great composition and sharpness of detail.

    Bald Eagle - that is one tiny flower. I like the composition with the halo of leaves and very nice detail on the unopened petals. It looks like it is going to be a gourd or squash when it grows up?

    aparmley - lovely composition with those sweeping curves and water drops which really lifts the shot.

    Here is another of my experiments "shooting through the leaves towards the light". These are purple beech leaves that are, surprisingly, a lot less purple in transmitted light.

    regards
