"RUSTIC ORANGE COLEUS LEAVES"
(Solenostemon scutellarioides, Vulcan)
"I sit in my garden, gazing upon a beauty that cannot gaze upon itself, and I find sufficient purpose for my day." ~ Robert Brault
October, already? Where did September go? Time is really flying (use of personification here).
Despite the fact that the sun was beaming in Atlanta (aka "HOTlanta"), it was a beautiful day. I really like the color combination of the leaves, as well as how the sun is emitting the leaves on the left more. In hindsight, I probably should have cropped out the green leaf that's playing peek-a-boo at the bottom. Conversely, I am not the least bit disturbed. In the words of Elizabeth Jacob (aka arctangent) regarding my "Sushi Sofa" photo on September 18, 2014, and I concur, "Perfection isn't everything."
Have a wonderful Wednesday!
