06.09.13 life & death

This juxtaposition makes me smile. My friend Emy is trying to kill the invasive honeysuckle. She not only cut it down to the ground, she placed a skull over it!  I forgot to ask if this was a deliberate symbolic gesture…

In any case, the honeysuckle is growing right up through the bones like a phoenix rising from the ashes…

There is no more realistic portrait of nature than the fact of death and the resolute persistence of life all around it.
