weekly photo challenge: pattern

This ornamental kale has a pretty pattern of ruffled and crinkled edges. The bloom is not actually a flower but a foliage. This plant grows on cold places and the rosette will change from green to white to pink and purple and deep red.

travel theme: foliage

Leaves form a majestic silhouette across the sky as the sun sets in. I randomly took these photos last week as i was spending my afternoon at the coffee shop. I just thought they are beautiful and relaxing as the leaves gently swayed everytime the wind blows. It was a lovely afternoon and i’m glad i captured the moment.
