My neighbor has a trumpet vine that uses my fence to gain altitude.  Its behind my garage so I don't see it very often, but it's a nice view when I go back there.  I'm now going to take my chair back there and see if I can spot some hummingbirds.

Thanks for the explanation of the Gyandromorph. Thanks for sharing the memory looklover.

That's a rare bird Ruth! And I have unfortunately not seen one in the wild. I hope to keep birding and see one someday! They are so unique.

Here's a page about them.

Booklover, the bluebird is just splendid! Such a beautiful creature. I do hope the come back again; haven't seen one since I was a child.

I love the bluebird Booklover!

My Trumpet Vines didn't take 5 years to bloom - not exactly sure on the time - but I think a year or so - maybe 2.

Comment by Lillie on September 6, 2012 at 8:32pm

Joan, I have been told it takes a trumpet vine 5 years to bloom.

Comment by Steph S. on September 6, 2012 at 5:56pm

Oh wow! Lots of lovely pictures posted here today!

I love the Texas Bluebonnets Tony - much appreciated!

Thanks for the Sandhill Crane picture Joan - very cool!

Oh and Joan your Bluebonnets are lovely too. I really love the mix of colors in the photo.

How wonderful to see all these beautiful photos!

Right booklover, maybe they have peanuts on the bird airline - very cute! : )
