Trumpet Vine

trumpet vine


Our side yard has a double fence between us and the adjoining church parking lot.

 

The couple of feet between the fences is thickly vegetated with bamboo and this colorful vine.

 

This time of year the profusion of flowers drapes the fence and makes it downright pretty.

 

It is lovely when natural beauty makes something ordinary into something visually special.

 

Another lesson in being sure that what we see IS what is real.  This fence is in various degrees of decline.  No one including us is likely to note the condition while looking at it while the vines are in bloom!

How pretty!  I don't think I've seen those flowers here in North Carolina, not in red anyway.  And that's a good point, about the showy flowers distracting from the condition of the fence.  There's a reason for putting lipstick on a pig, after all!

On e of the things I like the most about Trumpet vine is the hummingbirds they attract. We have not quite bloomed out here yet
