I am, too, Sherry. Funny thing is I didn’t know what it was until today. Last year it was just a woody vine disobeying the trellis path it was supposed to follow. I never saw a bud.

It was an ugly, dead skeleton after Irma. Honestly, I didn’t care if it survived or not. But, it’s come back so much fuller and prettier than it was last year. When blooms appeared this week, I texted the former owner of my place to find out what kind of plant it is. After googling it and seeing all the lovely flowers, I am eager to see it in full bloom!

I was always a writer but lived in a bookkeeper’s body before I found Medium and broke free — well, almost. Working to work less and write more.
