Straight Out of the Camera Sunday



It's Straight Out of the Camera Sunday time, a meme of Murrieta 365.  There are two rules:  1) photo must be taken by you, and 2) no tweaking.  Cropping is allowed.




This was taken last May at the Lady Bird Johnson Wild Flower Center.  A tepee made with cedar branches for climbing vine flowers.  It would be an interesting addition to a garden; and if I am not burned out with weeding and preparing for a Spring veggie planting, I just might get an axe to chop off some branches of one of the hundreds of cedar trees around this place.  :D  You haven't lived until you've chopped cedar -- it's a nasty tree to work around.  Not only does it suck up all the water and store it, but cedar sticks and scratches like crazy.  But, it is a renewal resource that is used for fence posts, tepees, mulch, etc.

Until next time, God bless.

That is an amazing picture, Lynn. I wonder what it looked like after the vines had grown over it. Good shot, though!

I like that teepee idea! I hope I remember it when I plant seeds next May!

Great idea and photo.

This is a unique idea. I have a space that something like this would look very interesting. I hope you have one in you garden this year!

Great photo Lynn. I really like the teepee idea, that would be perfect for a small space at the back of my garden. Thanks for sharing the idea.

The little red ibis in my last blog post is here http://www.allmodern.com/iittala-BR004759-IIT1482.html
It's way too expensive but I thought it was cute so I used it in the post.

Oh yea, we are lucky enough (or unlucky) to have them.
