Abstract Leaves

With all this ohmygodwhenwilliteverend rain (why yes, it is raining again today now that you ask, and no, it isn't supposed to let up until sometime in May I think - for goodness sake ending a 10-year drought is a good thing, but does it have to end all at once????) at least things are looking lush and green for a while.

I haven't the faintest idea what plant this is, I just liked the shape of its leaves. I know it flowers at some point but none of my databases of Israeli wildflowers allow you to search by leaf shape. If any of you know please tell me. Hang on, wait a second, could it be wild tulips (and if so, when do they bloom)? The leaves do look quite tulip-like and an old man I met in the forest that day did mention something about tulips surprisingly being native to this region...

Whatever it is, I thought it made for an interesting photo.

It is lovely. It rained here from mid-August into late October -- I swear, almost every day. So I know what you're feeling. The worst part is that I missed all those weeks of taking photos.

Really beautiful, and yes, pretty abstract. And I agree - they definitely look like tulips! Will you be able to come back in a while and check?

yes, we have had lots of rain here..in fact it is suppose to rain again today.
lovely leaves. sometimes a lack of rain in an area makes for great foliage.

Beautiful, they look like waves.
As for rain, we need quite a bit here. This is usually our rainy season, but it's been pretty dry. Last night was a rare rainstorm.

love the POV .. to me they sort of look like what we call snake plants, I am not sure why we call them that ...
