Dive into the deep, dark Green.
On the way to the butterflies in my last post:
I had to pass through the botanical greenhouses.
I was completely dazzled by the variety of
Some have foliage as bright as any tropical flower
As prickly as your worst enemy
As wildly creative as a paint-splattered canvas
As fashionable as fuchsia-coloured silk
As daring as lime-green swords
As glowing as the rays of the sun
As subtle as a bright red blush
As ghostly as silver-dusted fingers
As deadly as blood-tipped teeth
As mystical as an old man's beard
And as unforgettably violet as this v-shaped leaf.
For anyone who is still stuck in the beige and greys of spring's exit like I am, I hope you enjoyed this (greenhouse) trip to the tropics.
In Friday's post I'll feature my favourite greenhouse flowers.
