I enjoy looking for patterns and shapes in nature when walking and playing outside with my son. It’s a different way of seeing.
The woods behind our house recently surprised me with many heartleaf plants (Hexastylis arifolia), which are evergreens found on forest floors.
I was inspired to look for more hearts in nature. It took close observation, but I discovered them in unexpected places.
I was reminded that hearts come in many different configurations, states, shapes, and sizes. These are some of the photos that I took over the past month.
What shapes or patterns do you notice in nature? Are there hearts in your neck of the woods?
