Trellis & vine…

Every vine climbing and blossoming tells of love and joy” Robert Ingersoll

Basking in the Glow

clematis-garden-photography-flowers-SwittersB

I feel particularly satisfied with this image today. This Clematis was goners. Trampled and crushed beneath debris and seemingly torn beyond repair. One single strand of tattered vine remained and maybe only a few inches in length. Last Spring, I cleared the debris away, put up a small shelter to keep stuff away from the base of this plant and gave some nutrients and water. Eventually the smallest green shoot came from the tattered vine. Slowly, shyly, the plant reached out and up a trellis I had put in place..the trellis seeming to be an overstated invitation for bigger and better things to come. The Clematis has reached upward and embraced the trellis and yesterday, finally, the first bloom emerged. Yes, basking in the sunshine. First time in years.

Random Takes Today………

I was coming out of hardware store, hands full when I heard the distinct sound of a military jet. I looked up to see one banking hard in the area…a totally never seen maneuver near the Portland Airport and into the air space of approaching passenger jets. Coming on fast was another fighter jet. I fumbled about for my cell phone and juggled sandpaper, plumbing supplies and a bird feeder while swiping the screen to get to the camera. I raised the camera and just attempted to follow along and snap away.

Later, I was cutting through a neighborhood to avoid the main street congestion during rush hour. There in front of a row of vacant lots and overgrown yards was a single plastic chair on the curbing. Not near a bus stop or house. Again the cell phone.

I noticed the sun was getting lower toward the horizon and then I noticed the trellis and clematis casting an intense shadow from the bright sunlight and I again grabbed the old iPhone.
