|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|May I recommend, when you are in a urge to ... and you have no toiletpaper by the hand, use the bottom of this leave as it feels like velvet better then any other paper, natural.|
The name of this leave is Butterbur(Petasites hybridus), so called as the huge rhubarb-like leaves with their downy undersides were used to wrap around butter in the days before refrigerators . The leaves are still used today as impromptu sunshades or umbrellas; indeed the name of the genus Petasites derives from the Greek word petasos, a type of hat with a wide brim . The flowers of butterbur appear before the leaves, often as early in the year as February .
Dutch name: Groot Hoefblad
hight: ca 100 cm

That's fine, I don't have to go to the supermarket now, I go to nature.
Fine sharp colors and good WS shot.

Henk, lovely image of such a ordinary looking plant. I love the colour of light coming through the leaf. And, does is come in packs of four or six?
