I've been realizing some of the more simple things in the garden can also be some of the most interesting. Take the vines and tendrils in the cucumber/gourd bed for example!
This one clearly decided it wasn't going to find anything of real substance, and so it just latched on to whatever it could. I'm thinking that leaf's not going to provide too much support for the plant and fruit belonging to that tendril!
This one's being very non-committal, and is waiting til it finds juuuust the right place to latch on.
This one creeps me out, reminding me of a skeletal hand. Hell, if you've seen the movie Coraline (just released on DVD recently), it reminded me of The Other Mother's (played by Teri Hatcher) hand.
This one here obviously started off on it's journey without a plan....but managed to get somewhere worthy after taking a few detours.
"Oh shit - now what!?!?"
Not much simpler than a plain ol' straight line!
Although a simple curl also has a lot of beauty to it.
I definitely think this one's my most favorite...something about it seems fern-like, or like a musical note?
For some reason I'm craving pretzels!
With some of these you can almost image you just heard the crack of a whip as it latched onto the trellis supports!
Someone needs to ease off the caffeine just a little bit I think! In fact...
...that's just part of the picture. Seriously - this was one busy mess... Is this where the spirals for spiral-bound notebooks come from!?
