Picture Perfect: Twisted.Snail Vine, Vigna caracalla

 

I used my Ricoh Digital Camera RDC6000 for this photo taken in the  Beautiful Garden where my son and daughter in law were married in 2007. The vine was a twisted mass of the most beautiful corkscrew type flowers and I thought this might be a perfect photo for the theme Picture Perfect Theme Twisted..
