The theme of this week’s WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge is ENVELOPED.
What could be more “enveloped” than this nice green tree completely covered with freshly blooming, lush, strangling honeysuckle?
John Viccellio retired after 24 years in the U. S. Navy and began to dig into gardening when he could finally land in one place. He completed the Master Gardener course in 1992 and has since designed and constructed two of his own gardens. He wrote a monthly garden column for ten years and was a regular contributor to Carolina Gardener magazine. John published his first book, Guess What's in My Garden!, in 2014.
He lives in Stallings, NC with his wife, in close proximity to six of his eight grandchildren.

Can’t figure out why people can’t have their cake and eat it too. Keep a plant like this under control with pruning and enjoy the wonderful fragrance and the old fashion sensory memories it evokes. Let it have its way and I would say enveloped says it all.
Thanks, Stepheny. I like cake and do I ever eat it, but….there are too many wild viney things growing in our woods. Think kudzu.
