Wednesday Vignette for July 13, 2016

That particular moment when a new Agave leaf is just about to free itself from the growth core of the plant is our Wednesday Vignette.
 The last tension before the letting-go.  

Update: Based on comments, I guess I should reassure everyone that the letting-go went as it should.

  2. This sort of stresses me out for some reason. Like seedlings that can't quite break free of the seed casing, I feel like I need to assist...

    1. Let it go, let it go, let that leaf out of the core...now I have that song in my head.

  3. It's a beautiful image! It immediately brought to mind Michelangelo's painting in the Sistine Chapel.

    2. A beautiful abstraction of that painting, indeed! Thanks for joining in, and sorry I didn't see it until today.
