Donna over at GardenWalk,Garden Talk has another excellent post this week for W4W:
It's all about Texture and Pattern.
Please be sure you see Donna's post; it is very detailed and informative including a fascinating way to help any gardener decide if their landscaping is as pleasing to the eye as it could be. There is always something to learn from Donna's excellent posts.
And that leads me to my take on the two words, which, unfortunately, won't be as informative or educational, but here we go:
I have always been fascinated by Mother Nature's patterns and textures; she surely does do them well. A few weeks ago, Joel and I were visiting a State Park near Wisconsin Dells and came across a tree which had fallen across a stream.
I noticed a burl on the fallen trunk and was amazed by the growth pattern.
Walking through our garden the other day, this lichen growing on one of our granite rocks caught my eye:
|A little closer look reveals individual blooms:|
|And really close up, there are the seeds. This particular miscanthus doesn't reseed in my garden, but I can see where it could be a problem where the temperatures are more mild.|
|And hopefully end up with something|
My thanks to Donna at GardenWalk,GardenTalk for letting me link into this challenging project!
