All over my place we have lots of trumpet vines climbing up trees, bushes, and other vines. I noticed some hanging up over the dogs' fence. Some may call them a nuisance, but I think they are another of Mother Natures beautiful things in her garden here on Earth. As you know from some of my older blogs, I just love wild flowers. They are special because no one planted them and they take care of themselves; they are wild. These flowering vines are not rare, in fact they grow all over the southeastern U.S. I am not the only one that likes them. The first English colonist loved their beauty and therefore, the plant made its way back to England. How about I show you some pictures that I just took:
As you can see, they are in different stages of bloom on the same vine. I took all these pictures from the same place. The colors vary from orange to crimson, depending on the age of the bloom. I hope you enjoyed a little beauty from my back yard today and that it helped to make your day just a little bit brighter. So, have a great day, you hear?
