Acanthus Flower

This is today’s photo; the tip of an Acanthus Flower, with added cobwebs, viewed through my office window.

The leaves of the Acanthus, or Bear’s Britches as it is colloquially known (I’m guessing it’s an English thing), my Classics teacher taught us, was the plant which the leaf is shown on the Corinthian column. The glossy leaves are quite statement-worthy in the right setting.
