Name the alien finger plant. Monochrome. My world

Pizza!

Monochrome

My World



Most of you know as this post is published I am on my way to Merry Old England overnight, then onto wonderful, wonderful France for a week. Hallelujah. Can't wait. In the meantime just leave you with a few simple images. Today I am killing two nemes with one stone, Monochrome Weekly,
My World. I'll obviously not be around to catch up with you, but I may just take a break from the French sunshine and find an internet cafe.


Following on from yesterday, another question for you. Can you name this plant. I know it's in black and white, which it not the best for identity purposes, but do your best. It was a creamy yellowish colour with sage greenish colours stems. It was also covered in a very peculiar red insect, which I will show you another time. It could of course just be an alien outstretched finger. Phone home anyone.

Perfect lighting for this plant! Looks so bright and crisp in details! France is wonderful place - the best tasting breakfast I remember was in France!

Tarra B. Have a great time.

Carver said...

I hope you have a great trip. Beautiful shot. I am familiar with the plant but the name eludes me. If no one else knows, I'll look it up in one of my garden and landscaping books.

I have no clue what it is but you've captured it marvelously. Have a wonderful trip!!!
Hugs and blessings,

James said...

Simple and beautiful.

Aileni said...

A plant with monochrome presence - nice.

RuneE said...

It can't be something covered in frost, or I might venture a guess. It'll have to be the haven't-a-clue species.

PS Thank you for the comment, and enjoy yourself.

Rob said...

Well, happy holidays in Catalunya! It is very very hot! Enjoy!

Maria said...

Have a great time in England and France! Best greetings, Maria

Starnitesky said...

I like the contrast between the plant and the dark background.
Have a great holiday.

Sylvia K said...

I have no idea what it is either, but it's beautiful and I love the contrast! Have a fabulous holiday, Babooshka! I'll be looking forward to a complete report with pictures!

And, as always, tip one for me!

Enjoy,

Sylvia

brattcat said...

Bon voyage, safe travels. This is such a delicate image. A lovely one to leave us with.

marley said...

It looks like Astilbe to me but you don't care, your on holiday!

Great shot to leave us with. Enjoy your trip. Can't wait to see the photos :)

Brian Miller said...

hope you have a great trip...not much help on the plant unfortunately.

D said...

Whatever it is, it is perfect in monochrome!
Have a wonderful trip!

~Just me again~ said...

Nice shot! My first thought was it was branches with 'hoar frost' on it. Not sure what it is, but its a great shot!

GreensboroDailyPhoto said...

Hard to tell about the plant in B&W. Could be a heather.

Have fun in France. Oh, to be so close...........

Sistertex said...

Very nicely done. Reminds me of veins of ice.

Sistertex said...

I take that last one back, more of tendrils. Very cool photo.

bettyl said...

Great shot, as always! Enjoy your holiday!

Anna said...

Excellent shot, no idea what it is, however, wishing you nice time. Anna :)

Amy said...

It looks like a type of fern, have a lovely trip :-)

Reader Wil said...

totomai said...

Daryl said...

Lisa Wilson said...

I don't know what it is, but it is a great photo!

fourwindsphotojournal said...

It might be goat's beard. It is the right color.

Hope you are having fun!

Samantha ~ Holly and Zac ~ said...

Really nice shot.

That's not the dreaded Japanese knotweed is it?

Super shot----as always. Looks like fern spores. MB

Elisabeth's bright side said...

I don't know about the plants name, but the picture is great.

Thumbelina said...

Superb picture as always. Enjoy your holiday. When you get back, pop over for my last post. I can't find the time to blog anymore but I will visit and lurk or comment from time to time.

Bim said...

I think 'Alien Finger Plant' is a very good name for it, if not 'Ideal Monochrome Plant' :)

Bibi said...

Scotch Broom?

Melusine said...

Very good monochrome image!
I believe it's an Astilbe arendsii, I have a few in my garden :)

Mojo said...

No clue whatever. I'm what you call botanically challenged. But it looks stunning in black & white!

Maria Berg said...

I know the plant in Swedish, Astilbe eller Pylyspirea. MB

To be a upright lenient being is to from a amiable of openness to the world, an cleverness to group aleatory things beyond your own manage, that can front you to be shattered in uncommonly exceptionally circumstances for which you were not to blame. That says something very outstanding about the condition of the principled compulsion: that it is based on a trustworthiness in the unpredictable and on a willingness to be exposed; it's based on being more like a spy than like a treasure, something kind of fragile, but whose extremely particular beauty is inseparable from that fragility.
