|New Guinea Trumpet Vine|
I took this photo at the Naples Botanical Gardens. I have never seen this species before, being familiar only with the more common vines. It grew ravenously around a column, along side an entrance door. As you can see it made quite a statement in it's full glory of bloomdom.
I cropped the photo and added several textures, rendering it old and vintage like. I just love those old linen, vintage fabrics.
Since vines love to travel, now is as good a time as ever to discuss our trip. I am beginning to wonder about our choices and certain destinations that we have chosen. Our first destination was a Mediterranean Cruise, that went to Egypt, visited the pyramids, a dream of mine, and we all know what happened there. Luckily we were refunded our money.
So let's stay in the United States and see more of our country. This is no time to travel abroad we thought. Sounds reasonable???
Our dear friends, John and Judy drove up to Illinois to see their new grand-baby and we are flying into St. Louis, meeting them and driving back down the middle of the country stopping in, Branson, Little Rock, Memphis, New Orleans, Baton Rouge, The Panhandle, Cedar key and wherever the wind blows us. OK so, we all know what happened in St. Louis, don't we?
Wow do you think the travel angels are trying to tell us something?
Our decision is to go and enjoy and we are looking forward to our trip. Yikes!
I will be posting everyday, and can't wait to see what my instrument of capture will capture?
