I tried to take a photo of today's earrings amidst the Virginia creeper, but their green provided too much camouflage.
Leaves of three, let it be.
Leaves of five, let it thrive.
Two vines, three-leaved poison ivy and five-leaved Virginia creeper.
I slipped past it and the stinging nettles, and hung my leafy green earrings among the green blueberries that dangle, ripening in the warm sunlight.
These, like many others in my collection, were a gift from a student years ago, a child who bought them with her own money while on a vacation with her family. When she saw them, she thought of me. That warms my heart, as the sun warmed this last day of May.
