coleus

My wife always grows coleus because they look cool and they are very heat and sun tolerant.

This particular variety really caught my eve, it’s a limeish green leaf with burgundy veins – in my mind, a very unusual color combination. The coloring is enhanced with some minimal HDR processing.  I also made a monochrone that I’ll share later.

    Almost like an abstraction – a pattern emerges that might be used for many purposes.

    Beautiful! We found that they grew better indoors. Right up until they died…
