“Hey man…hang on a second and let me get a picture of that”

See what inglorious indignities I suffer for you folks.
It was in my mind to write some cute post about plants that creep through the garden fence to share their beauty with, “We, the Outsiders whom are not privy to the Inner Garden”. The only thing is I don’t do cute to well.
Philodenron hybrid 'Burle Marx'

Ok, maybe “Blossom freed from Bondage”…errr, nope, too much like some smarmy adult DVD.
Aw heck, “Flowers through the Fence”, yeah, that’ll work…not to creative but, whatever.
Key West must have more white picket fences per capita than any other town I know and plants doing their thing tend to grow though them and I always looking for something to feed the voracious appetite of the blogosphere decided to do a photo series. So here ya go …but I still kinda like the ring of “Blossom freed from Bondage”, smarmy or not.
