172/365 Vines

"Growing Hearts"

This vine is growing ALL OVER the backyard.  We have to pull it out of the trees and off of other plants.  It has a resilience much like that of the cockroach.  Its only redeeming quality is that it provides privacy for "natural" nights in the hot tub.  

This evening as I was photographing it, I noticed that many of its leaves are heart-shaped.  It is hard to despise something with little hearts all over it.  I have a little more appreciation for it now.  I'll try to see it as something more than a perpetual nuisance.
