Every trip to Gibbs Gardens proves to me that I am no horticulturist. I can identify some plants by sight and there are markers on others to tell me what they are but there are many others that I just don’t know. In this case, the plant in the background is Lamb’s Ear and they were sparkling with rain/dew drops giving me a great contrast to the little yellow flowers above them. The cool texture on the flower’s leaves and the water drops on its petals make that interesting as well.
I’m not sure if I actually captured all of the layers of light, pattern and color that there was in the natural scene but I thought this was pretty cool.
