Overwintering looks better up close

Sun-loving plants indoors under fluorescent lighting does not make the happiest of scenes. These plants want to be basking in the sun's brilliance, not subsistent in the feeble shine of those glassy tubes.

Even so there's a beauty here, emphasized by a too-close eye. The limited view accentuates the natural geometry, magnifies the color, amplifies it all, pulling texture from the smooth.


The overwintering tables restore a hint of summer to the coldest days, when a close look is the nearest I will get to a garden stroll.

That time of the year, when most of us have to make do with indoor plants for a gardening fix! The photos actually look like they were taken with natural light rather than fluorescent ones, must be your great photography skills :)

It's nice to have some green living things (other than martians) inside during the winter to get a bit of a garden fix! You've captured some great details. How long until spring?

Oh dear, winter.

At least you get good photos, bad light or not.
