Colorful foliage plants are always important contributors to a well planned garden, but never more so than in autumn when few flowers, and fewer colors of flowers prevail.    Toledo Botanical Garden,  Ohio  September 6, 2011
Fall flowers and foliage in the raised bed that surrounds the Joe Ann Cousino sculpture 'Woman with Birds'.    Rendered by applying two layers of filters (accented edges and poster edges)    Toledo Botanical Garden,  Ohio  September 6, 2011
How extravagant of nature to have the leaves of this plant (identity unknown to me) emerge an electric purple color, only to fade to a pale silvery green tinged with ghostly lavender as the leaves mature.  If you zoom way in, you can see tiny hairs or bristles along the edges of the leaves.  I'm pretty sure this is a species of Strobilanthes, possibly Strobilanthes dyerianus (Family:  Acanthaceae).  If so, it also goes by the common name 'Persian Shield'.
Crumpled hosta leaf.    Treatment:  1) Leaf had two filters, accented edges and dry brush applied.  2) Background was darkened, had the contrast lowered, then had the paint daubs filter applied.    Hosta Hillside, Hidden Lake Gardens,  Lenawee County Michigan.
