In the spirit...

... of posting each day of May - a challenge set forth by Lisa (Curious Girl) - I am aiming for 21 days. So there will be a mix of long and short posts, a single photo, an inspirational color combo, what is going on in my life, musings, who knows what else?

Akebia is one of my favorite vines - unassuming, delicate flowers, light green palm-like leaves, then huge, ugly hotdog shaped fruit if you happen to plant another Akebia in the vicinity! I transplanted the white one to another part of the garden to avoid the fruit.

Deep burgundy flowering vine
Winding through the lilac
Intermingling with roses
Reaching for the sky


  1. Amazing fascinating photos - you inspire me with your eye for shape and colour...and perspective!
    Kristin :)

  2. That is an amazing vine. I have never seen one but you photographs of it are out of this world. The close ups inspire me.

  3. i think that's the first time i've seen these flowers. never even heard the name before. they are lovely.

  4. beautiful!!! it's difficult to post everyday, even 21 days. I can't wait to see what you offer.

  5. The second last photo is really really really good!

    Looking forward to all the May moments.

  6. So beautiful! I've never seen this vine before either but it's gorgeous. I love things that ramble and twine in a garden.

    Your photographs capture such beautiful light, colour and texture Beverly. I love the top one especially.

  7. Oh Beverly, how wonderful. I'm totaly in love with the first picture. I'll guess you've found a new buddy in your camera. Have fun making lots of photo's.
