Lucy Corrander - Single Ivy Leaf with Dead Leaves

Scroll Down for a Bigger Picture

Amidst the dead brown leaves, that single green holds so much promise---of life and living!

Really Lucy, I think you could publish a book of photographs called "Textures"

I love this picture. That leaf looks as if it's just had a terrific idea.

Hello Kanak - I like ivy. Many don't because it is common, gets into cracks in walls and can get a bit much when it climbs trees.

This leaf makes me think of the saying 'Great Trees From Little Acorns Grow'. It may only be one leaf showing - but, if it isn't already part of a great system, it soon will be!

Weaver of Grass - that would be nice, wouldn't it?

However, what with the internet . . . I don't suppose people need books of textures much now.

Years ago, I bought a book by Kaffe Fasset (the knitter) which is a book of photos of 'things' with rich colours and interesting patterns . . . He wrote it for precisely this purpose - to inspire people when they are working on tapestries.

It's a lovely book to gloat over!

Victoria - I like that idea. It's sort of boinging up in a eureka moment!

I'd seen it more with a slow smile on its face - floating above the leaves instead of growing through them.

Glad you like it.
