Greenery

 Today in  front of Lowes, the sun was shining on these large leaves. They were literally shimmering in the sun.





Green is the peculiar garb of spring; Nature displays it at that season alone in freshness and vigor. It is the symbol of youth, mirth, hope, gladness, tenderness, bountifulness, and prosperity.

~W. J. & G. A. Audsley

They sure are a pretty color green. I was thinking they looked like banana leaves too.

Or Bird of Paradise leaves perhaps? They look very similar to the banana plant. No matter what they are they are a beautiful shade of green, so pretty!

Now you know why that when the sun shines here which is everyday and It Shines on all the things in my backyard I keep taking photos of them although I have thousands of photos of the same thing because when the Sun hits those green leaves it is absolutely extraordinary and absolutely gorgeous

Martha said...

Pretty! I'm guessing Bird of Paradise. I have a few in my yard and these look exactly the same.

You did a beautiful job of capturing the light on the leaves.

I love the green grass, trees and plants as much as the flowers in the Spring!

Inger said...

I love all these bright green leaves. None of that where I live, so I really appreciate this post. Thank you.

Ruth Hiebert said...

These are beautiful. I would venture to say that most people would walk right by those leaves and never notice the beauty.

That quote captures well the hope that spring brings. Your ability to match thought-provoking quotes to excellent and interesting photos and situations is wonderful!

This post reminded me of one of my favorite poems in all the world. It's by Robert Frost:

Nature’s first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf’s a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf.
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay.

xoxo
