With a nod to The Bard


Comedy of Errors by William Shakespeare – Act II, Scene 2: Adriana:
Come, I will fasten on this sleeve of thine: Thou art an elm, my husband, I a vine, Whose weakness married to thy stronger state Makes with me thy strength to communicate. If aught possess thee from me, it is dross, Usurping ivy, brier, or idle moss; Who all for want of pruning, with intrusion Infect thy sap and live on thy confusion.

  1. Is that sedum or a vine?? I love that splash of white in w/ all of the greenery...great contrast!

  2. The white is "beard lichen" resting on our kinnikinnick plants. The kinnikinnick gets this gorgeous red berry in the fall. So pretty, and the plant keeps out the weeds.

  3. I just love lichen and this is a fabulous contrast to that rounded green vine!
