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

This week’s photo challenge is almost TOO easy. 🙂

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

…..along with budding passiflora and upward facing sunflowers just starting to show their faces:

….remember T. utriculata from my Weekly View posts?   Up, up and away is now an apt description, as its bloomspike breaks free of the orange-tree canopy. 🙂


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


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

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

Until next time…..

  1. Lovely post. Plants reach for the sunshine and so do people. We’ve had a few sunny and “warmish” days around here and folks are shedding their clothes to gain more exposure to the sun. Happy Spring!

  2. The mockingbirds are nesting up here, too, and we sure have a lot of them. But I think it’s a mourning dove that’s been sitting above our deck and dropping some calling cards below. 😉 Looking up can have its dangers!
