Works right into that zombie thing I seem to be so determined to freak myself out over.

to decide on a flowering vine
Even though it’s a little too late to grow one this year. Shown here is the Canary Bird Vine, I like it’s leaves.

    For a flowering vine, I’d recommend Clematis, they come in all different colours and the flowers are large some flower from June to October!
    (Not that you asked for a recommendation)

    After reading Cell you will not want to speak on one for a while. Enjoy!

    Oh I’m very much addicted to the Bach Rescue Remedy Spray/Dropper bottles!

    Whether it’s a placebo or a really effective remedy, I don’t mind – it seems to help me to have it on hand.

    Although so does sewing, or having a crafty project to work on…

    I want a change of scenery, too. Something near water… oh wait! I’m moving to Florida! *grin*

    They are making Cell into a movie. I am looking forward to it- as I look forward to all that is zombie.

    I don’t scare easy anymore. But Cell definitely had its moments!

    The canary bird vine looks great! I hadn’t seen it before. Other fun annual vines are sweet peas and nasturtiums. I like nasturtiums because the blossoms have a pleasant peppery flavor and look great on salads.

    I had wanted to do morning glories on our back fence, and I’m disappointed in myself for waiting so long. Maybe we could still try and call it a trial run.

    Oh- that vacation shot looks like the beach we stayed at on Oahu!

    whoops- sorry, That was almost taunting.

    I second the clematis recommendation. I have autumn clematis on a fence at my house, and I’d say it’s not too late for you to plant it. It grows like crazy – something like 20 feet over the summer- even after being pruned way back.

    We had no idea what this was when we moved in and didn’t do too much to it, yet we were surprised by tons of white flowers in September. It’s pretty low maintenance, which is nice.

    Thanks for the clematis recommendations, there was one growing on the back of the garage in the house I grew up in and I liked it. For a low-maintenance plant that comes back year after year I might consider it.
