Today, I Love This Even More ...
Every spring I curse this vine - it is so much work to clear out all the old dead leaves to spruce things up for the fabulous explosion of all our bulbs. But then I look at it on a day like today and think - this is beautiful. Over the next few weeks each leaflet will take its turn in the spotlight - flaunting its striking crimson boldly before withering away. This plant does not go quiet into that good night (of winter) - thank heavens - or it would be out of here. Then, today, I found out that my wonderful Nana loved this plant dearly because they shared a name, Virginia. My heart opened up a whole new room just for this plant today, and my Nana, of course.
