Under a fan palm leaf

We're back in Singapore and I could kick myself as I knew I wouldn't have time to go to any of the big gardens in Singapore today, and it might prove difficult to find anything organic today ! But while trying a short walk around the Kampong Glam area we passed this fan palm tree and I thought that would do for organic :-) See the extra for another try

Obviously you can be as free as you want to be re the theme, although for abstracts I'm more thinking about organic shapes then about the farming meaning. Organic shapes are more fluid than geometric shapes, although these palm leaves have a pretty straight pattern :-)


Don't forget to tag your entry with AT173 and do tell me if your entry does not end up in the whole AT173 collection here.


Thanks so much for the safe travel wishes and other kind comments and stars. We're staying another couple of days in Singapore for more meals with son no 1 and meetings with old friends :-)
