White Heart in Nature


I have to show you my journey on discovering what were offered at the Belle Isle Conservatory. These were the white heart leaves, with pink veins that I spotted after seeing the green ones.


They appeared to me like magic when I was least expected, but were a delight to my senses. They were amazing to see, and inspecting how beautifully the heart was form on each leaf.


I guess when you're tuned in to nature, it will always surprised you with something wonderful, and it could be as big as this leaf, or it could be just a tiny strain of grass.

  7. I once had a houseplant of this species (much smaller than this beautiful specimen). The colors in the leaf and its shape are perfect.

  11. Super pretty. I haven't been to the Belle Isle Conservatory in years. I might have to get there on my trip back "home" to Michigan this summer. Great shot.

  15. Really beautiful. My mum, before she was killed, used to love these plants. She had them in pots back in South America. They were very lush. She took great care of them.

  17. Black and white photography is intended to communicate. Nature images which are good would communicate and portray the subjects well.
