Abstract II

My entry for Paula’s black and white Sunday last week resulted in quite a few guesses, mostly snakeskin or some kind of wood. It was a close-up section of the trunk of this Mexican Grass Tree – a spectacular plant from north-eastern Mexico that, when mature, sports a foot wide trunk and a large sphere of long, stiff, square-edged, bluish-green leaves.

I now live in the UK, but spent several years travelling and then living in South Africa. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

  1. I think I was on the wood guess list! Thanks for the zoom out Jude. What fun to see the tree. Nature really is an amazing artist and you have the eye to find the art.
