The theme for the November photo contest at Gardening Gone Wild is ‘THE END OF THE LINE’ the theme can be interpreted literally (you know, with lines…), or metaphorically (the end of the gardening season).
I’ve admired the entries in previous contests, and think it’s fabulous they encourage everyone to enter. No requirements that you talk techy photo talk or sling around a fancy camera. So here is my (first ever) entry in the Picture This Photo Contest… If you’ve visited danger garden before you might recognize it from one of my Berkeley Botanical Gardens posts; I took this photograph during our visit there on October 14th. The lines are the silver blue fronds of a Brahea decumbens, or Rock Palm. Unfortunately I don’t know the name of the tree behind it producing the green/blue berries. The magic of the photo for me; is that it’s an exotic version of the brightly colored leaves and red berries image that’s a fall standard here in the Pacific Northwest.
