Plant textures

This summer is a perfect time to get outdoors — in between the rain showers — and appreciate the textures of the plants. I found these contrasting textures at the New York Botanical Garden.

Some green plants look as inviting as a soft pillow. Others — not so much! Find these at the New York Botanical Garden.

Flower textures

Nature can do a lot of different things with pink and orange. Just look at the different textures and shapes in these flowers from the Union Square Farmers’ Market in New York City.

These shapes remind me of brain coral I saw in the Great Barrier Reef.

Flower petals give way to a second round of tiny yellow blossoms. They resemble cactus flowers.
