i love the second image, Mary - it has a fiery quality to it and also i like the fuzzy feeling spreading all over.
Care MacADNski: The plant is pure texture - waiting to be photographed.

Asparagus does not grow here...what a bitty! Both excellent images, Mary.
Care MacADNski: It is a delicious vegetable and I am so glad to have it.
Quelles jolies couleurs pour la deuxième photo !
Care MacADNski: It is a nice green then autumn makes it golden.
Beautiful in B&W and color... it was taking over!
Beautiful video, Mary... You and I share an appreciation and love for Indigenous Peoples. I'm so appreciative of the elders that teach the traditions and the youngsters passionate to carry them on!
Care MacADNski: One of those pictures that look good in both. Thank you.
The early Acadians survived only because of the native people and there is still a strong bond.
I loved this video!

It looks amazing, I have never seen the like.
Care MacADNski: This bed came about by mistake. In 1984 I planted asparagus crowns in my vegetable garden. In the fall, I took the stalks with red berries to make an autumn arrangement by the front door. When the tulips and daffodils beside the entry came up in the spring, asparagus came with it and I welcomed it with open arms. It is now a thirty-five year old very productive bed.

The mono image is a real joy
Care MacADNski: Creating joy is one of my aims in life so thank yo very much!
I quite like the color version this time, Mary, because it reminds me of AUTUMN!
Care MacADNski: Yes, and it is interesting to note how each year is very different as to the date they can be cut back. I have shown asparagus day much, much later in the year.

I have just cut back mine, but it is only a very small area compared to yours
Care MacADNski: I must copy my response to Chad - This bed came about by mistake. In 1984 I planted asparagus crowns in my vegetable garden.

Works well as either version Mary
Care MacADNski: I agree, Sir, either is pleasing.

Both shots are great. I like your composition. Arnaluqah - I think the words are interesting with those faces.
Care MacADNski: I absolutely love this band's videos. Thanks for the compliment too.
I'm not gping to try and pick a favourite between these two, each has its merits, I've not seen anything like this before.
Care MacADNski: Only part of the asparagus crop is eaten. A percentage of each plant has to be allowed to grow to replenish the whole plant.
Here is the story on this one:

Wow - a bit of a jungle!

Well I never knew asparagus grew like this.

Wow, this is wonderful in B&W, Mary!
Care MacADNski: I thought it worked well.

i love the greyscale version

it has such an abandoned feel to it (except for your description : - )
