April 20


I visited my Dad today at the long term care center where he is receiving physical therapy after his total knee replacement. He's doing great and is supposed to go home on Friday.
This fence borders the parking lot there. I love the old vines crawling across it and the vinca flowers bordering it.

I'm glad he'll be going home this week. Knee replacements are tough.

You find the most unique, beautiful shots and this is one of them! Glad your dad is doing well.

Such a beautiful shot. I used to have the trailing vinca in a corner of my yard but it got to be intrusive to everything else so I spent several years trying to get rid of it. Now I wish I had it back. It actually stays green throughout the blistering heat of Phoenix summers as long as it has a tiny bit of shade. It doesn't really ask for much.

Hope your dad's knee is good as new!

Beautiful stuff, Mari. I love the way wood fences photograph, and then throw in the flowering vines & it's totally beautiful!

I'm glad to hear your dad is improving.

We used to have a dog named Vinca. We named her after the flower because when she was a puppy (and we were trying to figure out what to name her) she would eat the vinca's outside our front yard.

OOOOOOH, I love that piece. That is a keeper for sure.

Hope your dad is coming along well and will be home soon.
