I took some photos in the garden today. The evergreens are greening-up, the deciduous trees are mostly budding. Below, is one of my earlyest shrubs to bloom.
Mahonia (Mahonia aquifolium) Oregon Grape Holly. Holly like evergreen leaves, upright growth. Root has good antibiotic activity.
Cool shots kidchill, your crops seem absolutely appropriate, #3 particularly so. I've been looking at them for at least 15 min.
The '39 Ford is stunning. Your capture of it on that crowded field, in the middle of the day is amazing. :thumbup: Or could #4 be a Lincoln Continental?
Thank you, LaPhoto. I did my best to get the tree shadow incorporated into the picture; I'm glad I did because I was disappointed with the capture of the vine. I think most of the sky color came from increasing saturation trying to bring out the vine.
You are correct eminart. They're noted for pulling down all but the most sturdy structures. They can be trained and forced to grow as a small tree. I've long thought about trying it but it just hasn't happened yet.
It's 4:30 in the morning, I've been up most of the night, lately playing with some photos and feeling the urge to post something. This one didn't really capture the grip this overgrown Wisteria had on this old house but I thought I'd run it by you. In person it looked like the house was crying...
