Latticework of Weeds

Blackberry bushes are considered weeds in Seattle, so it always makes me laugh when I see blackberries for sale (usually for exorbitant prices) in grocery stores.

As I grow nearer to departure day, I find myself collecting memories of this beautiful place and stringing them together, like beads on a necklace.  Besides memories, I find that I am also collecting art supplies--I am not sure what I will be able to find abroad!  Even though this goes against all of my traveling knowledge (don't buy anything now, get it when you travel, etc etc etc), I am so particular about some of my art supplies that I don't mind stocking up before I leave (besides that, they're light!).  Plus, shopping for art supplies pretty much makes my day. 

Trailing ivy always reminds me of The Secret Garden and how a thick curtain of ivy had grown over  the long-lost door.

I love the lacy lattice of thin undergrowth branches.
