Flower of the Day – 11.8.18

“Dark clouds become heaven’s flowers when kissed by the light.”
– Rabindranath Tagore

Good afternoon everyone! Enjoying the beautiful flowers while studying outside at a coffee shop this afternoon. Weather is absolutely gorgeous after several stormy days. What an intense election season! It’s refreshing to see some light at the end of the tunnel.

    Glad you are enjoying the sunny day… and the result of the vote – well part of it anyway. πŸ˜‰

    Would you believe i have a relative of this plant just outside my front door in bloom at the moment??

    It’s two tone purple, light petals – dark tube and is a vine/climber called a Bower Vine but am sure they are related! Will confirm in a little while.. i hope! πŸ˜‰

      I love climbers! I hope I can see them sometime. Maybe you already took some photos. I’m trying to grow some morning glories.

        About 2 screens down on the right hand side of my home blogpage is a ‘Search function box.

        Type Trumpet or Bower or vine and you and hit enter or the magnifying glass and you should find some photos! πŸ˜‰

    OK… i’m going for Yellow Trumpet Vine, Campsis radicans of the Bignonia family. My bower vine is a member of the same family, different genus.

    I also have an Orange Trumpet Vine that has big bunches of long, but thin tube flowers that grow in clusters that bloom in June. and look like an orange waterfall! πŸ™‚

    Happy to help. πŸ™‚

    1. theresaly520 says:

      It does something with the senses doesn’t it? I’ve always wondered about color therapy… πŸ™‚

      1. Chiru says:

        Yes really color matters😊

      Yellow is one of those colors that has consistently brought joy to my life aside from the warning signs from the roads. πŸ˜‰
