Leaves of Three. . .

After Thanksgiving dinner, I wanted to take some pictures of Houston trees and vegetation which is always green and lush no matter what time of the year.


Across the yard, there was a wonderful opportunity to take a walk through some uncleared brush. I got about ten feet into the area when I looked down only to see "leaves of three, don't touch me" or poison ivy most likely. I slowly backed out.


Plan A could no longer be followed, I went to Plan B. I found these flowers in the grass.

Something about this photo appeals to me.


Huge elephant ears.

A tree with red berries . . . everyone was too busy for me to ask the name.

Until next time, God bless.

Lynn, I like the one with the bricks showing through the giant leaves. All very nice captures, though. You ARE multi-talented, trust me!

I like all the detail in your photos. It adds a lot of interest. It is nice seeing all that green. Everything here is brown. Great shots.

It would be nice to have flowers in the winter, but I would miss the change of seasons and the snow!

Very nice pics! Lovely colours!
Every tree here in Italy is turning brown and bare.

I have been seeing lots of photos of leaves these days, I have been staring at the leaves in the garden just this morning and I noticed that we grow that elephant ear plant that you've posted...they're huge!

Thank God you recognized poison ivy. I have no idea what it looks like. I bet if I ever touch it I'll never forget what it looks like. LOL
