Sunday wonder - T

T is for tendril. That tiny green vine some plants use to pull themselves out of the dirt and into the sunshine.

I love the name as it connotes the tenderness of the shoot. This twining melon looks so fresh and young on the older stalk of another plant.

Some are complex...

And some are very simple...

The wisteria performs its dance in the air above our heads...

And some, like this sweet pea vine , just seem to perform for the sheer joy of it.

Beauty of form as well as function. Aren't they truly wonderful?

Lovely pictures, poetic words.
Thanks for sharing some joy today!
You're a tendril in your own right.
