Weekly Photo Challenge: Up (and the Weekly View!)

This week’s photo challenge is almost TOO easy. šŸ™‚

Everywhere I look, the plants are reaching up, up, up, like this ipomaea cairica (aka mile-a-minute) vine:

…..along with budding passifloraĀ and upward facing sunflowersĀ just starting to show their faces:

….remember T. utriculata from my Weekly View posts?Ā Ā  Up, up and away is now an apt description, asĀ its bloomspikeĀ breaks freeĀ of the orange-tree canopy. šŸ™‚

While I was looking up through the tree, IĀ glimpsed aĀ marvel of avian engineering, so apropos for today of all days!

How perfect! Finding a mockingbird nestĀ on John Jay Audubon’s birthday (birdday? ha!)

You never know what you’ll seeĀ when you start looking up!

Until next time…..
