The Dracaena Circle

 Toward the exit of a shady grotto of tree ferns , cane begonias , Bromiliads, squinting a bit and reaching for the sunglasses, pulling the hat brim down.Beyond the Eugenia topiaries and across the sunny path you see more shade, really deep shade.


It's compelling, the shade across the sunny path, what's in there ?



  Shades on, shades off. Camera settings adjusted. Hate flash , so I'll take my chances. Crazy branching. How did this photo even come out ? It was dark in there .



Nothing grows here, except for these enormous Dracaenas; there are no tags  , so I assume Dracaena draco.







 The view from outside the circle.

  2. When we visited Lotusland on a roasting hot day, that shade under those Dds felt like heaven. Great post!
