Wet leaves

Yes, another gardening post. Hey, it’s spring and I’ve had distractions, alright? Besides, I know none of you read my 1500 word polemics anyway, so I might as well make it easy for myself.

Possibly the only thing more boring than flower photos are photos of wet leaves. (They’re all the same color!) Thus, I proudly present you with a photo of wet leaves.

I like this one because it reminds me of those candy spearmint leaves I used to eat as a kid.

If you click the photo you’ll download a high-res 1680 x 945 pixel version (about 800 K) which makes a rather vivid wallpaper for wide-screen monitors. Don’t thank me, just click on an ad. Oh wait, I no longer have ads. OK, toss me a nickel next time you see me.

  1. These look great! I’ve put my mint outside in a terracotta pot (so they don’t spread everywhere), but they don’t look as good as this. I imagined a tonne of mint tea, but have only harvested a sprig once.

  2. Personally, I think the most boring photos are the “Here’s a picture of Bob and Doris that we met on holiday” variety. I don’t mind holiday photos or pictures of places I’ve never been, but (posed) picture after picture of people you don’t know is mind-numbingly dull.

  3. Mmmmmmm. Spearamint leaves. I LOVE those things.

  4. ooops. make that spearmint. damn phonetic spelling.

  5. if you make green tea with a few generous sprigs of mint, then chill it, it is awesome. gorgeous image!!!
