Trumpet Vine and Bananas

From a recent trip to the San Diego Botanical Gardens:


Seeing bananas growing in the winter never gets old for me. Can you tell I grew up in the Midwest?


I’ve seen red and lavender trumpet vines, but not this particular hue. Have to say I love it. Be warned that they can grow up to 30 feet long. You’ll need a very lengthy fence, but isn’t the color amazing?

Hope your week’s going well so far.

    Love the trumpet vine and have never seen this hue. I wonder if the hummingbirds would be as attracted to this color as they are to the orange/coral hues that are dominant in E TX.

    That’s such a lovely colour. Cheerful!

  6. The trumpet vines are spectacular. Love the fanciful shapes.
    Would you believe it’s been so warm here that the daffodils are starting to shoot up?

    At this time of the year! That wouldn’t grow old for me either. The color of the flowers is stunning.
