wednesday vignette


Shadows cast by plants can be as interesting as the plants themselves.

Euphorbia 'Sticks of Fire'

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.

  1. 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.

  2. 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…

  3. 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.
