I am reveling in the warmth of the Isle of Enchantment (Isla del Encanto), Puerto Rico. What a delightful break away from the harsh winter weather up north.
Here, I am drawn to living walls – walls decorated with pendulous flowers, walls with vines growing up on them, weedy fences that hold a few surprises.
I am staying at a Raw Foods Institute that has its own organic gardens. That’s where I was wandering around early this morning. This protective wire wall kept a smaller garden safe from marauders and provided lots of vertical and horizontal climbing spaces for plants. The bluish tint reflects the ambient early morning light.
Cucumber vines and a vine with small red flowers cover the outside of this wire wall:
Even more delicious were the sky blue morning glories spreading horizontally on the wire roof:
On the outskirts of the garden, I found this weedy looking fence, nothing spectacular, just another living wall:
When I looked more closely, though, I found a few things growing there – it may be various stages of the same fruit:
I’ll close with this picture of lavender flowers cascading down an invisible wall:
If spring won’t come to me (yet), I just have to look for it elsewhere…. Isla del Encanto.
