HOSTAS AND BAMBOO By Cecelia Lyden

I chose the same area as Julie at the Lindenwood Estate. My emphasis, however, was the alley between the hostas, Hostas Alley, [Julie's name] and its view of the tall bamboo trees. I also loved the contrast of the bright green, sunlit ferns against the dark, in shadow, base of the bamboo trees. I'm a "sucker" for strong light contrasts.

Beautiful soft light. I was there today and recognize the scene.
