Just one of many shots I've taken in my own garden over the years.

I worked in horticulture for many years, and we always recommended to our clients that planting a variety of textures, colors, and shapes was more visually appealing and more interesting. I see here that I have at least 5 different shapes, and several colors in this shot. The feature plant here is Hosta - one of my favorites. I have around 30 Hostas in my yard.

Today it would be hard to believe that my yard could ever look this lush. There is 2-3 feet of snow covering everything, and it's snowing again as we speak!!

Cropped slightly, frame added and sharpened. Colors are the way they came out of the camera.
