Weekly Photo Challenge: Close

Weekly Photo Challenge: Close

The clematis plant close to the camera is growing up my front porch.

In the background you can see the road and get any idea how close it is to our house.

In fact the house is close enough to the highway that a split second after the photo was taken the wind from that big blue semi blew the flowers around.

But, we have planted many trees and a willow fence across part of the yard and the road is close to tolerable.

Unfortunately they are very close to redoing the entire road that we live on.

We are waiting, and waiting, and waiting to see how this will affect our property and if the road will come any closer than it is.

And all this waiting is pushing me much closer to crazy than I’d like!

    We live by the road ourselves and our house rattles when big trucks pass by. I hope your property won’t be affected by the expansion. By the way, your clematis is soooo lovely. 🙂

  2. Clever “close” post – Here’s hoping any changes to the road won’t be more disruptive to you!

    Love the clematis. I have a couple dark blue-purple ones in my yard. A recent hot wind blew every single flower petal off my favorite one though.

    Lovely photo.

  5. The Clematis flower looks beautiful. And the blue car in the background , with fields, reminds me of the beauty and joy of the countryside.
