In May, I received a beautiful Mandevilla for my birthday and planted it in a bucket beneath the wreath with hopes that it would grow up onto it like a trellis...and it did!
I love the hard and soft elements together... beauty and the beast... good vs evil... the delicate and the harsh... total opposites living in harmony.
The delicate tendrils wind through the wire making a lovely contrast.
Birds have nested in the wreath every year since it's been here and you know how I love a bird nest. Right now there are two empty nests hiding in it.
The Mandeville began to creep around the side of the dairy so I placed my old iron headboard against the opposite wall and it is moving next door, which is okay with me. I'll have a totally different view from each side of the building.
This headboard belonged to my great-grandmother. She used it as a trellis in her yard. I'm just carrying on the tradition.
The Mandeville won't survive the winter here, but I will definitely be replacing it next spring!
Here's a Heart Rock for your Pocket:
Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good. Romans 12:21
