Morning Glories and Mandevilla plants are both climbers.
They put out tendrils that love to climb higher and higher.
A couple of months ago, I asked hubs if he could think of a way for the climbers to get from a shelf to the top of the porch.
A big space covered in greenery would make a lovely natural "curtain" on the back porch.
Hubs, who always tried to make my wishes come true, put strings up from side to side in a space on the back porch.
Sure enough, the Morning Glories and Mandevilla plants started to climb. And climb. And climb some more!
They look sooooo beautiful. It's like a curtain of greenery.
Sadly, my beloved hubs died on July 9th.
By the way, one of hub's favorite flowers was the orchid.
One on the back porch is blooming profusely.
When I look at the wall of greenery, thanks to his ingenuity in hanging the zigzag strings, it makes me smile and cry at the same time.
The plants and their string climbing wall are here. He is not.
Sometimes life is hard.
