Gracie then. . . . and now

Some things never change.  While so much of our landscaping died in the many hard freezes we had this winter, this vine did not.  When Gracie was a little puppy she'd head out to the vines and just lay down in them forcing them into flat beds underneath her.  Yesterday spring was in the air and she did the same thing only this time she is soooo much bigger! 


As you can see, the vines are in bloom and our warmer temperatures are here now.  It's one of my favorites times of the year.  I think Gracie likes it too!

Happy Stitching,
Diane

  17. Gracie is beautiful! My grandparents have raised Golden Retrievers for years, so I have a soft spot for them.

    Your vines are Vinca Minor and the purple blooms are the most common color. They're an evergreen, perfect as a ground cover and virtually indestructible, especially when left in full shade. Our kitty likes to "hide" in the vines of our Vinca, as well.
