My Croton - Beautiful Plant

We have a beautiful Croton (no, not an alien - a tropical plant with a funny name) in our sun room that is so colourful and beautiful - it is a focal point in our sun room. The sun shines in and casts a warm light upon the plant's beautiful green, yellow and pink leaves. It is surrounded by windows that look out to our back property where the background is lush and green with Springs new growth and new foliage on trees. I cannot help but feel overwhelmed with happiness at this time of year. For some reason as each year passes me by, I fall more in love with nature - plants, trees, flowers, weeds, birds, some bugs (not all), all of nature's gifts that thrive and live in a natural environment. I feel very fortunate to be part of it all.

I grabbed my camera one afternoon, while the sun was shining through our sun room, to photograph underneath the leaves of our Croton. I was amazed at the colour and intricacy of each leaf! There is another world happening inside of each leaf.

Here are a few photos which my camera and I took that afternoon. Thank you for viewing! These aren't 'flowers' but 'leaves' this time! My best wishes to you all. Michelle

Hi Michelle,
The foliage is very interesting-I have never seen one of those.
I feel the same way about nature-last night I spotted the first hummingbird of the season in our garden.
