Virginia Creeper veils many a tree. When we step out our front door on a sunny, summer morning, we are greeted by the beautiful sight of sunlight glowing through the veil of Virginia Creeper leaves, and are also able to see the shady, rough bark of the oak tree behind the veil.
Hmm. A friend said I like contrasts like this. I think he may be right. I love the contrast of the shiny leaves, newly opened to the world, climbing up the weathered, rusty post which has been standing its ground since some farmer planted it there so many years ago. It also makes me smile to think about how it appears that the post is sprouting new leaves for the spring!
