11.11.2021 Aging beauty

I’ve only photographed hosta twice.  Both times the back of the leaves drew my attention.  This one during the summer backlit to show the structure and now with the beauty of aging dressed in frosty finery.

Not exactly in another conservation area, just my backyard. Eventually I went to Hickory Ridge which you saw earlier this week.

    I like the pleated effect, especially combined with that curve.

    Gorgeous, Steve, and I guessed it was a Hosta before I read the text. You’ve only photographed them twice? Seriously? Come on!!! 😉

    I love the gentle curves of the frosted veins. The leaf looks as if it has been quilted. (But rather a chilly quilt!)
