Weekly Photo Challenge: FRAME

The theme of this week’s WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge is FRAME.

I used this arbor, covered with a variegated weigela to frame a view down the path in my former Chapel Hill garden. The pot draws your eye through the frame.

    I’ve steered away from weigela worrying it would get too large, but this is a wonderful use of it John. Must have been a wonderful place to garden.

  11. Yes, the photo gives me a peaceful sensation. I love gardening. I love to touch the dirt and don’t minds to have dirts inside my nails. Thank you for liking my Road to Hana. I have to come back to learn more about gardening from you.
