Giant Bird of Paradise

Posted in Huntington Beach, Photography by Bridget Casas on February 2, 2009

Here we have another early morning photograph of shadows and texture. The sun is shining through the leaf of a giant bird of paradise with some jasmine leaves showing through. Most people think the plant is a banana tree plant, but it is actually a giant bird of paradise. When it blooms the flower is about 12″ or more tall! The leaves are concentric and the array of colors is beautiful!

Beautiful bird of paradise leaf…

I am so glad I have another class starting tomorrow. Could it be an addiction? It makes me happy and I really look forward to it. Again, the weather is beautiful here today! It is supposed to snow up in the mountains on Thursday and Friday. I told Willie I would like to go up on Wednesday after school.  I will keep an eye on the GVL web cam and see how it looks! Until mañana…
