I am not a gardener by any means, but I definitely appreciate the beauty of a garden, and I love to photograph flowers and plants. In keeping with my texture theme this week, I consider the garden a great place to examine different textures.
One plant that I love, mostly because it’s almost impossible for me to kill (lol), is hens and chicks, a type of low-lying succulent plant which stores water in its leaves, stem, and also in its roots. What I love about this plant is how the leaves form around each other in a rosette. Each section of the plant looks like a bloom from a flower. They are available in different colours, and some do actually bloom, but I just have the green coloured plants in my garden.
Look closely at this photo and see how many textures you can find. Obviously, the leaves themselves are smooth and soft, but the end of each leaf is sharp and there appear to be filaments down the sides of each leaf which give a fuzzy appearance. When they flower, you add in even more textures from the long stalk and the blooms themselves. Have you ever noticed all of the textures in your garden?
