After the Freeze

Posted by
Barbara Lee (Oakland, United States) on 15 December 2009 in Plant & Nature and Portfolio.

This weekend, I was walking around in Healdsburg, in Northern California. Last week, a big freeze came through and many plants had melted down from the cold. This plant - hey, I do not know what it is - was, in its state of decline, just gorgeous. I loved the velvety texture on the leaves. While my friends went on to the B and B open houses in the neighborhood, I just stood on the sidewalk, trying every possible angle to bring out the loveliness of these leaves.

If anyone out there knows what this plant is, I would love to find out! It was about the size of a good sized hydrangea.
