Twisted Grape tendrils frame fairy wind chime.
This time of year you can almost see the grape-vine tendrils grow. We almost have to chop our way out of the house because it grows so vigorously.
A little twisted: Pony tail wearing bearded Barista wearing a My Little Pony Tee shirt
I asked him if he was being ironic wearing this tee but he claimed he just liked My Little Pony because of the new animation.?? The photo would be more twisted if he wasn’t smiling so big.

I have been trying to get a good picture of the Tulip Magnolia over our back fence. Since it was 61 degrees at 7:30 this morning I was willing and able to trot around the garden with my phone and capture the wily Magnolia and a few of her friends.
AHHH! Finally Magnolia over the fence!

Stone path and my pink toes in the garden…
After a walk in the garden new grape leaves catch the morning sun and welcome me back indoors.
I’m posting this in connection with Cees Fun Foto Challenge Man Made. I finessed it a little; the magnolia close up is the only one totally made by Mother Nature but couldn’t leave it out. After all that was the goal of my morning wander. Which Foto do you think best satisfies the challenge?
Praying for rain in California,
For years I had these words taped to my mirror. They worked for me and my friends who saw them told me they meant a lot to them as well.
About the photo: This juggler kept dropping her pins but just picked them up and started over. I was so impressed by perseverance and self-esteem. Maybe it didn’t hurt that she had a small fan encouraging her.
Everyone and everything needs love, encouragement and support. I mentioned paper whites yesterday and it’s not to late to start them NOW.
My paper white have started to bloom after less than 10 days. I attempting to keep them upright with grape-vine stems and ribbons.
Perhaps they had some encouragement too.

May each and every one of you know you are love and receive all the love, encouragement and supported you need to grow and bloom.

The Earth spinning around the sun,

Stonehenge, the Mayan and
the greasy girlie pin-up calendar,

Seems it’s a three grape vine week thanks to Margo Roby’s Tuesday Tryouts
To go out in the middle of the night,
is foolish enough, but to attempt
to rescue the moon caught in the grapevine
I must have been out of my mind.
Oh, but I’d do it all again
for a chance to dance
with the moonlight
’til we’re both free.
