Bindweed

 

bindweed 2

Been away from the paths for most of this summer, and now I find the first signs of autumn as I go up Nun’s Walk above River Tweed.  Bindweed everywhere, and fly-ridden blackberries, and fireweed flossing, and the buddleia almost over; and the first leaves colouring and falling. But it is still humid, and this year there are insects and butterflies all over. Have started  a new story, takes place in the snow.

Willow and Bindweed

bindweedandwillowtree

All along beside the Leet the bindweed is rampant, it climbs up and over everything.  This willow looks as if it is sprouting white flowers.  It is a pretty plant, bindweed, with those pointed leaves and long pink buds which open into this white flower that is, I know from experience, very hard to paint, I suppose because of the depth of the trumpet and the whiteness of the petals. The willow leaves are drooping down, the bindweed is climbing up, the greens are nice together.
