summer scrambles







I actually got out of the house for a little while today and stopped at the top of the hill to put the numbers back on the mailbox.

 I planted these seeds in the middle of summer once the other flowering thing had given up. It's taken over the place and probably scares the mailman.

Some tougher cousin of the morning glory I think.

Hah! I had a lamp post back in Calif that resembled your mail box... planted a potato vine at the base, and it did the same thing!

I was a mail person for 25 years and, yes, vines around a box and post are scary. I've found garter snakes, lizards, bees, wasps and dirty socks (???) in mail box vines. But as long as the mail man can reach the flag to raise/lower it, it should be fine. I like it :o) --- I'm retired now :o)
