T/Twisted

 Grapevine

Grapevines twist themselves as they grow to anchor themselves...and wild ones can be a real pain to cut out of trees and shrubs. Yep, I can tell you all about that!

 'The Knot" by Fly Freeman

This is one of several sculptures donated by local sculptors to the Town of Uxbridge, Ontario.

Christmas lights

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

I am joining ABC Wednesday  HERE

Do I see a bit of frost on that gnarled grape vine? At first , I thought the sculpture was actually a cut tree. The sculptor really fooled me. And, yes, it is beginning to look a lot like Christmas.

i like the knot and the grapevines, too.

Hello, the Knot sculpturer is pretty. I've been seeing the Christmas lights going up too. Cool shot of the twisted grapevines. Have a happy day!

Shammickite said...

I'll have to watch out for that twist when I'm in Uxbridge!

John @ Sinbad and I on the Loose said...

Neat shot of the grapevine. Living in wine country I bet there are a lot for me to go out and find just like that one.

Jennifer A. Jilks said...

I never thought about photographing the twisty grape vines! They are ubiquitous here!

A pain they might be but they make a great photo :) I like 'The Knot' and those Christmas lights are pretty.

Good samples of Twisted, EG! We had a bit of snow on the ground this am but it is all gone now!

Lowell said...

So, you're saying, to drink the wine you've got to untangle the vine? Back about 1960-61 we lived in Scottsdale, Arizona. There was a vineyard a few miles away. You could pick your own red and white grapes - for 5 cents a pound, or you could pay to have them picked and bagged for you for 10 cents a pound.

I don't think you find that's the case anymore. :)

BTW, are you making fun of me just 'cause sometimes I get tongue-twisted? ;)

Darla said...

What a great close up of the grape vine. I like the sculpture too. I'm not really ready to think about Christmas but I suppose I'd best get with the program

Halcyon said...

Someone put up some lights on the tree in front of my building. And it's getting cold here - I'm ready for some holiday action!

cieldequimper said...

Gosh, what a wonderfully twisted post! :-)

Marleen said...

Yes Christmas is on its way!

Yogi♪♪♪ said...

Great pic, you even got the frost on it.

I'm having trouble getting into the Christmas thing.

Tom said...

All tied in knots.

Hildred said...

I am tying knots, putting a dummy warp on my loom. Almost 500 of them, - I don't like to contemplate knots, but admire your grapevine.

Leora said...

So twisted! And observant of your surroundings.

Oh,I love the twisted vines.

Maggid said...

I really like your concept - BUT, now my mind is playing "Twisted" by Joni Mitchell . . . (seems my thinking has given your blog a soundtrack today . . . ha!! unintended collaborative effort . . Great photos, thanks!

Roger Owen Green said...

I too thought of Joni. And Chubby Checker.

My mom and dad used to have grapevines in the back yard. When they would trim the vines after summer, they would twist the stems into wreaths to decorate for the holidays. Guess that's twisted twists. - Margy

Kathy said...

I love those twisted knots of nature!

Terri @ Coloring Outside the Lines said...

Yes, they are a giant pain! I like the shot- is that frost?

Rose said...

I love The Knot and those Christmas lights...but that grapevine is possibly the most beautiful of the three.

Stephanie said...

Wonderful images!

Liz said...

A great series of images.

PerthDailyPhoto said...

I still can't believe Christmas is almost here again EG, where did the year go? Love the natural twist of the grapevine.
