On my recent trip to LA Reynolds Showcase Nursery, I stopped to look under the tables full of flowers. There is always beautiful moss growing there and the light makes patterns that are magical. I could stand there all day and photograph life most people never stop to notice. Hovering over these little mini canvases are hundreds of beautiful annuals and perennials which would be beautiful photographed from any angle. I find it just as interesting and inviting under the tables.
This fern was growing nicely in the rich and mossy forgotten areas. Next time you go to your favorite nursery, don’t forget to look under the tables. There is so much activity just waiting to be discovered. I think it adds to the character of my shopping experience. Going to the nursery is just as much about the textures, smells, and obvious beauty as it is the hidden things you find tucked away that aren’t so visible.
This looks like a nice place to take a nap. It’s protected and never been disturbed. There is something fascinating about going where no one has gone before. To be the first to touch and fell the quiet.
I love the undisturbed areas of a nursery. When I see something like this and I have my camera along, I go into that zone that only trained athletes attain. It’s the zone where you block out all noise and distractions causing you to pull away from the moment. I don’t hear a sound around me and then it becomes emotional. I could cry or laugh and do so quietly. When I become aware of those passing and going about the process of buying and inspecting plants, I think to myself that I just witnessed something they did not. I’m privy to a world that most take for granted. I’m thankful to my great aunt who taught me to pause and look at what is beyond first glance.
