Pavers creating both a texture or pattern and a graphic image of a woman's traditional cape & hood (white riding hood?)

Plants do sometimes have "natural" forms that seem almost unworldly to us

Only three iterations here, but there were many along the stems & branches of this plant.

That particular one is a coastal succulent, and seen in Addo Elephant National Park. Have not seen it elsewhere.

Found some shapes on the forest floor at Delta Park today

Interesting pattern of small leaves punctuated by a few flowers.

A little sinuous curve makes these steps more visually interesting.

And looking up a very different staircase. It's built in tiers, you walk up a short flight of steps inward toward the center where the white arches are, turn toward the outside either right or left across a little terrace or platform, then again up a short flight toward the center from either side, etc. The blue arches in the middle each have a little trickling fountain and a small recessed pool at their base. At the top of the steps, the flow of water is in a small masonry trough that runs down the center of a paved slope. This is a famous garden construction at an estate called Naumkeag (= 1st nations tribe) that belonged to a wealthy NYC lawyer.

Here's a view of the Naumkeag steps from further back. Hedges hide most of the steps on either side, and the mass planting of lilies, part of the cutting garden at the base of the steps, obscures the the last central steps and blue recess. The birch trees are also part of the landscape design. They were originally planted in clusters of three although because birch is not an especially strong wood, some of the clusters have been reduced to only two trunks.

Another view from the bottom to show the central steps at the very base of the stairs.
