URBAN JUNGLE BLOGGERS MARCH – BOTANICAL ZOOM

Plant details Ready for some more plant action?! This month for Urban Jungle Bloggers – I am getting up close and personal with the tiny magical details that make plants so special to me. Botanical Zoom has had me looking out for sunbeams on leaves, new shoots, unexpected additions and beautiful shapes.Plant details Plant details Leaf veins create such intricate patterns and the texture of each part of a plant is so different.Plant details Plant details This magical striped leaf pattern with all its colours variations – reminds me of dinosaur hide from Jurassic times, what do you think?!Plant details One of my favourite discoveries on this months challenge was finding these vibrant lime green shamrock leaves growing in with my Australian Ivy. Look at their fuzzy stems!Plant details Plant detailsI have had a ball capturing my planty friends in all different types of light and from new angles. Bright sunshine, evening light, from above and below and peeping through the foliage. Plant details Under the lens, this beauty has a white edge that really makes its leaf formations sing.Plant detailsPlant detailsOur Aloe – a gentle healer with a toothy side and below, this string of pearls looks such a lovely smooth shade of green – next to the rough edge of the vintage plant pot. Plant details Plant detailsI also couldn’t resist getting a close up of my green eyed jungle cat Marlo, to go with the post too. Go visit our lovely jungle hosts Igor and Judith and the whole UJB’s gang for more inspiring botanical zoom fun and new themes each month xxxTabby catPlant details
