Shadows cast by plants can be as interesting as the plants themselves.
My ‘Sticks of Fire’ have failed to ignite, even though they spent the winter in a south facing window. The parts right up against the window did take on a pinkish cast. I do love the form, and especially enjoy the shadows, as shown in the first photo. Anna, (Flutter and Hum) hosts Wednesday Vignette every week. It’s well worth checking out.
I’ve been known to check out and photograph the shadows cast by plants on my interior walls as well. Great capture, they can be fascinating.
Loree has done the same, and posted about it. Will we get to see some of yours?
Shadows are great – especially when showcased against such a beautiful background as your livingroom, Ricki. As for Sticks of Fire, I wonder what it takes to make them ignite as you said. I gave one to a friend once, and although healthy and in front of a window, it’s as green as can be. Wonder what the trick is…
If you learn anything, please let me know.
I love your shadow photo. My Sticks on Fire…only turn barely red on the tips…and they are outside in full sun with late afternoon sun. I was beginning to think they were a different variety that stays green.
Hmm…curiouser and curiouser.
What’s wrong with Sticks ? I’d be happy living in that corner.
I thought I would get answers here, but the mystery just seems to deepen.
Very creative! Your room is as beautiful as the shadow photography. No idea about Sticks on Fire–but do keep us posted!
No answers so far.
Even without ignition the ‘Sticks of Fire’ look striking in that vase.
I’m not altogether unhappy with the sticks…more puzzled.
