I think Louisa would like these trumpet vines. I loved her hollyhocks that always seemed to tower over me as I hid amongst their lanky stems and double blossoms. She would sit and admire them, something I catch myself doing with these trumpets.

WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE: CHERRY ON TOP

The cherry on top.

PLAYING the piano at the New York Public Library on Fifth Avenue.
