One of the best (nearly) wordless posts I've ever seen.

much symbolism in this and why it has caught your attention...and ours. you've made something quite beautiful out of something quite destructive.

They look like little frog feet.

Diane B. stole my comment. :) But I LOVE these plants! Great shots.

Interesting. Would like to see the difference in Spring.

They really do look like little frogs legs. Can't help admiring natures instinct for surviving. The heat and lack of moisture and yet they hold on. Have a good day Julie.
Best wishes

We've got these here! Actually, we had them on an old house of ours growing up and my father HATED them. He always had to power wash and scrub the stucco to get their little stained suction prints off!

A still life study! It's beautiful.

Beautifully captured.

Julie said...

I can see the resemblance to frog feet, specifically the green tree frog. But it also reminds me of having an ECG done with all those little electrodes attached with goo around my chest.

It's amazing how nature clings to life in so many ways.

Julie said...

Jim, I will try to remember to take a comparative shot during our spring. It's only 100m up from Five Ways.

These are wonderful, especially the red ones. I guess I have never thought of the suction caps changing colour too. And look at that lovely camellia hedge too with its carpet of pink on the pavement below.
