Weekly Photo Challenge: Fresh

Weekly Photo Challenge: Fresh

The instructions are:   Fresh. The definition for fresh has a bit of a fork in it – it’s a state (new, recent, previously unknown) and it’s a taste or sensation (cool, sweet, invigorating, refreshing).  I’m going to let the Daily Post community divide however you want with this – which definition will you go with? Show us what you got!

One of our ornamental banana plants is making a beautiful new leaf. I can think of many examples of “fresh”, especially with so much fresh produce in our area. I know this doesn’t have a fork in it but I think this new leaf is really pretty. The fresh, new, green leaf in the morning light with a few droplets of dew looks fresh to me.

I know I’m behind and this was last weeks photo challenge. I’ve been busy with this and that, and then preparations and travels. We’re in the US now, just arrived last night. We’ll be here almost a month in four different locations, so there will be news and photos when I have some time to spend on the computer!

    I love when the banana leaves first unfurl also. Then they get all ratty and droop. Still I feel that the banana is an amazing plant. 🙂

      Sometimes the dying leaves get very interesting patterns of green, yellow, and brown. Much more than that though and they go to the compost pile.

  2. I’ve only recently begun growing banana plants.
    When I moved into this house, a single unknown variety was languishing in a terribly shady spot along my back fence (it never put on more than two leaves) This spring, I finally transplanted it to a sunny location in front of my vine wall and it’s doing great! Seeing how well it did, encouraged me to research banana plants and WOW! I had no idea there were SO many different varieties!! I chose something called a Snow Banana (ensete glaucum) because it blooms an enormo white pendulous flower, So far it’s growing fast and the leaves look great! Fresh, indeed!!!!

      Oh yes, I know! I haven’t even begun to understand about all the different varieties. I’d love to find a nursery that sells different kinds so I could learn more. Your snow banana sounds so cool. I hope it blooms for you and you post pictures! I googled it and it looks unlike anything I’ve ever seen.
