June 19th, 2011 – Gunnera Tinctoria

Happy Fathers Day to all you dads and granddads! I don’t have a lot of memories of time spent with  my Dad as he passed away when I was quite young.  But I  do know that he was a spirit-led,  good, hardworking man and I try to honor him  by the way I live my life.

After shooting this plant I had been hesitant to share the image because I didn’t know anything about its species and really didn’t have a clue about how to look it up on the web.  So I sent a copy to a colleague I that I had worked with on  the Cityscape Phoenix  project last year.  Eric Higbee is a landscape architect and a great guy. He was able to offer a quick ID on the plant for me . I had seen and photographed the leaves of this plant before, but this was the first time I’d seen the flowering part of it.
