Not a Flower










A stunningly beautiful coleus plant in a friend's garden. Aren't the leaves just amazing, both in colour and shape - love their frilly edges!

I've never seen a coleus like this before. This is just stunning. The colors are amazing! I saw a comment you left on another blog saying you use iphoto. Are you familiar with CreativeLive? The have free live seminars on the web and today's topic is iphoto. I think it starts in about 4 or 5 hours if you are interested. If you miss it live, you can buy it and watch whenever you want.

The colors! Since I am embroidering these days my first thought was how stunning this flower would be embroidered with threads in the same color palette.

Gayle said...

Thanks Deb and Michelle - I managed to catch nearly an hour of CreativeLive when she was covering photo editing. Picked up a couple of helpful new things to try :)

Thank you everyone for your wonderful comments.
