my trough runneth over

these pink blooming vines are everywhere right now. they look like small climbing roses, but they are scattered in random patches in the woods. anyone know what they are, or if i can get them to climb my old iron archway?

one of my embroideries was accepted for the upcoming show called "from the tongue" curated by joetta maue. i was jumping around most of the day yesterday yelling "i'm an ARtist, i'm an ARtist" in the most obnoxious way. i've never been able to say that before without feeling silly. and today it just seems unreal. it's great for this to happen while we're just beginning this hotel adventure.


  1. The picture isn't super clear, but they look like wild roses to me ... But I'm not sure which kind : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wild_Rose
    We call them "églantine" in French ...
    I'm sure you could have them on your iron arch !

    And congrats, I'm super proud of you and happy for you !
