GBFD - leaves on a wet day

I went with the Giardino Romano yesterday to visit the garden of the late and well respected gardener Joan Tesei. The weather was pretty grim and either raining or about to rain. Whilst the flowers & roses were pleasant and just about holding up under the wieght of water, the foliage really carried the day. Here is a Vitex agnus castus silhouetted against the cloudy sky, perhaps all the more dramatic under the dismal conditions. It had been placed here on a corner very carefully so that its foliage could be appreciated in profile. Happy Gardeners' Foliage Day.
