[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Polygonatum odoratum, aromatic Solomon's seal

Native to Europe and Asia but related to native American biflorum; Latin name from poly or many, and gonu or knee joints, referring to the many jointed rhizome roots; common name may be from the scar left on the roots once the stems die off in fall, resembling seal used on wax on documents in past time; common name also may be from fact that the powdered roots were believed in 16th century to "seal" broken bones when drunk in ale.

Beautiful. The selective focus is very effective and together with the repeating pattern creates an artistic composition. A most wonderful green. Well done.
