I always loved spotting these vines when I walked in “my” Illinois park. I’m not sure they were appreciated by their inadvertent hosts, but their graceful shapes always attracted my eyes.

Friday’s big question is always: What’s the theme for the Weekly Photo Challenge?  It’s generally answered at 11:01 (according to my laptop) am CST.  Today as I wait for the answer, I’ve been watching a stage of the Tour de Suisse, as I greatly enjoy watching cycling, along with hockey and rugby.  My husband used to play the latter and does a lot of cycling.  A few years ago, we were able to see a stage of the Tour de France, which was very exciting.

But back to the challenge.  Today’s theme is…(drum roll, please)…”Curve.”  This morning, during my walk, I spotted some of my favorite curves, those of (strangling) vines.  Now I’m off to the library, so I’ll catch up with all of you soon.  Happy Friday!

Quite a twist

One of the great things about winter and spring is being able to see things in nature that are normally covered by growth.  Along with drops of water, I love the twists and twirls of vines that come into their own when other growth is gone.  I guess you could say they hang in there.  🙂
