Urban Terrace Garden Party: Trees, Plants, Shrubs and Vines Play Peek-a-Boo
The buds of my Actindia kolomiktia (Kiwi Vine) have just begun to appear, assuring me that perhaps we will have spring one day, hopefully before summer. I've written about this wonderful vine, which you may read by clicking here.
Meanwhile this vine has patiently endured the winter,
wrapped around the railing (that surrounds my rooftop garden) which is beneath snow, while its friends (my plants and herbs and shrubs) are huddled together in winterized containers wrapped in love with bubble wrap and burlap as seen below:
I imagine its been somewhat lonely for the Actinida kolomikta, but it is entwined with its counter-part Actimida, and I know they are eager like me to have the shrubs, trees, and plants be unwrapped.
But it's only April (and it's a chilly one) so for now, like me, they will have to be patient and "settle" for playing plant-peek-a-boo.
