Folio Photo: Climbing in the Garden

July 9, 2013
Climbers in the Garden - Sweet and Savoring

Our peas are growing up like crazy!

I thought I’d do something different today and participate in a photo prompt link-up, hosted by Christie at bedsidesign.

Today’s photo prompt isΒ climb.

We go out to the garden every morning to see the progress our veggies, fruit, and herbs have made. It’s amazing to watch how much a plant can change overnight, or even just after a rain shower.

These are our peas. I’ve never grown peas before ( in fact, Andy is truly the head gardener here and I’m basically the herb harvester and occasional weeder), and it’s fun watching their little tendrils wrap around rope and climb their way upwards.

I can’t wait until we have fresh peas!

I took these photos with my old Canon SX100 IS on the macro setting.

Feel free to join the link-up and post your own photo that somehow relates to today’s prompt,Β climb!Β It’s always so fascinating seeing how creative everyone gets with their interpretations πŸ™‚

      Thanks Liz! Even my husband the professional photographer said they were ‘quite good!’, which is quite the compliment, haha.

    There is something beautiful about those little tendrils. Actually, I really love the word tendrils. What a great photo.

    I love gardening! I’m currently at my Grandma’s house, and she has some peas growing too! Isn’t nature just so lovely?

      Gardens are so much work but a lot of fun, especially when I can just go outside and pick some herbs or veggies for dinner. Nature is indeed flippin’ awesome πŸ™‚

    My husband’s family never had a veggie garden, so when I started gardening, he was so fascinated by the whole climbing tendrils thing. πŸ™‚ “How does it know it can wrap itself around that?! THAT IS CRAZY!” I wish my peas grew this spring–they didn’t and now it’s too hot for them, so I’ll have to wait until fall!

      I know, it is kind of crazy if you’re not used to seeing it- currently one of our summer squash plants has creeped over to the peas and they’ve sort of curled around each other and joined forces, haha. It’s like this ongoing battle in the garden to see who can claim the most space!
