B&W Garden 2: Darwin Botanic Gardens (1)

Dead leaves

Dead leaves hanging from a branch.

I have two posts featuring the Darwin Botanic Gardens in black and white, for inclusion in Jude’s Garden Challenge. While visiting the gardens in September last year, I was struck by the stark beauty of the shapes of the many dead and dried plants, and the play of light and shadow. Next week’s post will highlight some of the gardens’ flowers.

Dried palm fronds like a wing

This sweep of dried fronds remind me of an angel’s wing.

(By the way, the pig sculpture peering from the foliage in the badge below is also from the Darwin Botanic Gardens.)
