while green is still on my mind , i took these photos of a neighbors wall . it is painterly in the color sense of the plantings now that they have grown in . The Ti plants are reddish with lots shading but what started this photo session was the growing stuff on the cement walls. i believe it to be a creeping ivy , Fig? and the patterns it makes are most lovely. depending on time of day and year , the light plays off the plants and wall and color shifts. To me that is the amazing thing about color. subtle shifts depending on what is next to what and the light. ain't nature grand? you bet!

I love the lushness of both of these photos but most especially the natural design of the top photo. I see textured possibilities.

yes the creeping fig is an amazing plant in texture alone. the shadows make it even more interesting.no wonder it takes so long to retrieve the mail... no wonder green is my favorite color all these decades, followed closely by all the other colors!
