Nature’s Abstract Art…

Nature's Abstract Art...

For me, nature’s patterns are often works of abstract art, displayed before humanity in a living, outdoor gallery. These leaves are unknown to me. But, I think each one looks like a little, oriental fan, delicately spreading out from its stem. What do they look like to you? Does anyone know what kind of tree these leaves represent? There is also something about green. I love the myriad of greens that spring from nature.

  • They are lovely leaves , though I have no idea what plant it is, maybe a kind of palm ? – Or even a bamboo? Does Bamboo of any variety grow in Guatemala? – We have two types that will flourish in Canada……..

  • MO

    To me they look like green butterfly wings.

  • @Laura, I asked our gardener and he said the Guatemalan common name is Hoja de pez (Fish leave). With this new knowledge, I will look it up in Guateflora book to its scientific name.

    @Michele, Guatemala is a tropical country so I assume most bamboos can grow here without any problem.

    @MO, I thought they look like bat’s wings. 😉
