Virginia Creeper

By helenlinda
Plan A was three days with boat photos.

I saw this on the way home, creeping up a white wall and over a fence
Even as it was starting to rain I felt it was worth taking some photos of.
I think this is the best, as there is a good proportion of fence showing.

The sky was a hopeless white, so I've just lightened everything.
Hope you like it.

I'm adding something extra to this description this evening
My friend Margaret has these growing up her wall.
In a way this is for has been a hard day for her as she had her CTscan results and needs to start chemo next week for lung and liver cancer. So say a prayer for Margaret when you look at this image

Back to plan A tomorrow!
Thanks for c&c yesterday! I was amazed at the number!

Love the superb line curving from bottom left to the top of the image, draws the eye through the image.
The simple background enhances the leaves beautifully.
Great shot.

Yes Nick these were taken today!
This creeper grows from ground to roof each year. You cut it back after the leaves fall.
I've added a p.s. to my description tonight as these are in a way for my friend Margaret, who has them growing up her wall, and who today had the news that she has lung and liver read my notes and say a prayer for Margaret too.
