Metallic Leaves

Steely_leaves-201301

These very large Magnolia leaves caught my eye when visiting Harold Hillier Gardens at the weekend. I was drawn to the contrast between the darker-coloured upper sides and the lighter ‘tarnished silver’ looking undersides.

The leaves were huge – about twice my boot length. I should have taken notice of the species but was too enthralled by the leaves!

  1. Nice image M, I don’t think I’ve seen leaves this colour before.
    I’d have to say I think the dull light has helped to imagine these leaves in being more solid (metallic) than they were.
