In spite of the poor soil in my front yard (it was filled with dredge spoil when the Navy dredged the harbor during WWII) a passion vine winds around my porch railing and sprouts wildly exotic flowers throughout the summer.

They are a wonder to behold, although they can sometimes be difficult to see, hiding among the leaves.

This month's Ocracoke Newsletter is a tribute to a wonderful man who did much for Ocracoke Island, Marvin Wyche Howard (1897-1969). You can read it here: http://www.villagecraftsmen.com/news052113.htm.

    Never underestimate the will power of a vine.
    Flowers are just a wonder to behold.

    Wow! It is beautiful. We were in Ocracoke in May and enjoyed the many flowers. Thanks for posting this beautiful wonder.
