Purple Blooms

I credit both my friend Kristy
and photography for helping me see
old objects in new ways. 
This metal structure the clematis
is climbing on was once
part of a 3-section privacy screen,
with wood panels in each section.
I saw it and instantly thought, "Trellis."
I removed the wooden panels, 
added some thin wires for the vine
to help grow on,
connected it to one end of a shed
and now I have beautiful trellis
with a beautiful clematis.
It was planted only this spring
so I was delighted to have any flowers
on it at all, but am hoping
that next year the entire
trellis will be covered in purple blooms.
