homecoming




a glance up with a smile each time I pull into the garage

passing under the colorful climbing vine

that has made a springtime home


vine


encouraging me to keep climbing

holding on to the cracking wood and textured bricks that make up life

Who doesn't love climbing ivy?
Back in the house we lived in
in Nashville, the vines were
always so ready and willing to
climb, but the house owners
were quicker to cut. Glad to
see you appreciate they're
beauty. :)

Yes, that would also make me smile. Bits of green are finally popping out here, bright fuzzy green leaves on trees.

Yes, you are right, there is no place like home...whether gone for a few hours or a few days.

Always climbing up to keep our eyes looking up. It's a beautiful reminder.

Country Girl said...

No, not poison ivy - that's leaves of three. This looks like Virginia Creeper. You've painted a pretty picture of it, too!
