Red Jade Vine/Today's Flowers # 7

@ mirandablue

Red Jade Vine [Mucuna benettii]


What a desolate place would be a world without a flower! 
It would be a face without a smile, a feast without a welcome.
Are not flowers the stars of the earth, and are not our stars
the flowers of the heaven.

~ A.J. Balfour

Your vine is something new for me. It makes me think of grapes hanging down. Thanks for visiting and sharing. ♥♫
