Random Photo Monday: Plant Life

Off and on, over the last couple of years, I've been spending a little time digitizing our old 35mm slides. We have thousands, so it's obviously a never-ending process.

This one caught my attention the other day. It was taken somewhere on the River Walk, in San Antonio TX, when I was about nineteen years old. The photographer was my husband-to-be.

I'm not exactly sure what those plants are called - but don't they look like something from Doctor Who? Fortunately, I got away before they could wrap me up and devour me.


  1. Maybe it's a banana tree. You look so cute. I don't think I was ever that thin. Happy Blue Monday!

  2. Oh, I had to come back and comment on that huge plant about to put its leafy arms around you. Looks like an Elephant Ear plant. Tropicals make easy care indoor houseplants.

  3. Looks kinda like a banana tree to me.
    I had a couple of thousand slides taken in the 60s and 70s that I scanned into my computer. It's so nice to be able to do that, but it is a big job.
    Happy Blue Monday.


Welcome to Joysweb! And thanks for leaving me a comment. I love to hear from visitors. From time to time, I might have to moderate comments - I know that's not very hospitable, so I try to do it only on posts that are more than a few days old. Sorry for the inconvenience!

Also, please note that while I appreciate blog awards, I don't play award tag games. I think you all deserve awards!
