Once again it's that time of year...
I love the smell of it's damp leaves...the smell of autumn.
It's that unmistakably smell that you smell just once a year.
It's best picked before the husk burst.
I like to bring it inside where it is warmer and dryer,
and then awake to a whole new looking vine!
The tiny husks have burst open to expose their brilliant orange fruit.
The best color of orange that there is!
Nature is so magical...
I have used this beautiful vine as inspiration in two upcoming cross stitch designs. They are more harvest & autumn-themed. Two designs that can be left out through the Thanksgiving season.
