You Got to Have Heart : The American Heart Foundation symbolizes its cause and heart health with the color red. Since my wife Carol and I are both heart patients we decided to create a gallery with a heart healthy red theme.  What better backdrop for our theme than than the beautiful vistas from around our country.  This gallery is a celebration of life after heart surgery.

Euonymus fortunei or Wintercreeper : Wintercreeper (Euonymus fortunei  or spindle or fortune's spindle) is sold in nursery stores as a ground cover, for a garden that is being continuously cared for.  As a ground cover, it is very effective at covering the ground, smothering anything else that might have wanted to come up in the area covered.  However, in vine form, like ivy, it will send out rootlets into the nearest victim.  Unlike ivy, though, it gets really big and will strangle a tree.  http://www.invasiveplantatlas.org/subject.html?sub=3024

Neither of these characteristics make it desirable to have in a harmonious food forest garden.  However, the problem remains, what to do when invaded?  I didn't buy or plant any, and when I discovered the patch in the first photo, I initially thought I'd solved the ground cover problem for landscaping near the house. 

I discovered how dire the wintercreeper invasion could be last winter when wandering about taking photographs.It was in December when all the leaves have come off the deciduous trees, or in the case of some oaks, remain there brown and lifeless. Even the Bush Honeysuckle, invading from Amur, has dropped most of its leaves.  But there was this one tree I spotted that still had a lot of green on it.  I got closer was completely puzzled by this new kind of vine, at least new to me.  Kind people on a Facebook group identified it for me -- the same vine as I'd been admiring as a ground cover can form six inch thick trunks and strangle anything they come across.

Missouri Botanical Garden lists it as invasive, as does InvasivePlantAtlas.org.

The goddess as warrior : The goddess often has a martial side:  women can make war as well as men, sometimes with even more ferocity, as anyone who has disturbed a mother, human or animal, knows.  I've no doubt there really was a tribe run by women that gave us the name Amazon.  I rather suspect they were in considerably stronger and tougher shape than the very fit models who helped me create these images.  Although one of the models was in fact a deputy sheriff for a few years.

Nude Light Painting : These images are long exposures in which the light source that lights the model is in the frame.  In some cases the lights are handled by the photographer as if they were a kind of paint brush.  But in other cases the model paints him or herself with the lights during the exposure.  For more discussion about how these images were created, see my Blog at http://thenakedform.blogspot.com/2013/04/light-painting-naked-form-definitions.html
