My Bittersweet vine is an older gal .. she is very reliable and steadfast .. a permanent feature in my garden if she can keep going .. like most of us ?
She just had a fairly aggressive 'hair cut" from yours truly while a bit of a wobble on the ladder , but mission accomplished .. nice and neat for a few days at least.
I stand under her in the heat of working in the garden and it is truly a "green rest" .. cooler and refreshing for those moments .. I appreciate her a great deal during those times !
This picture is for my friend Rose .. you were able to grow the Moon Flower vine last year Rose and I bottomed out and missed it all with my mistakes. This year I am truly patient and look at the growth girl ! ... I have basil planted with the vines to keep it company and I think it helps ?
Kathleen from Kasey's Korner, and I are growing what is called Maypop Passionflower .. to see if we can over winter them eventually .. I will be planting mine in the garden before Autumn to try and settle it in ... fingers crossed !
The vine to the left is my Maypop one .. the other is Gravetye Beauty clematis and the Moon Flower and Chocolate morning glories.
Our lovey dovey couple were just so cute I had to take their picture .. this is where the spoon and moon start to come in .. just scroll down and you will see what I saw last night from my deck : )
Linda .. aka Crafty Gardener .. this is why the 26 x optical zoom is worth it : )
