This vine has been growing on the outside of my wall for nineteen years and I still don’t know what it is. On a whim, I snapped this photo not noticing what a wonderful background the color of the car parked across the street made for the little surreal still life the flowering vine formed. It’s the first good shot I’ve had of this flower in all those years.
A few days ago I published a photo of an all-white Fuchsia that Yolanda calls an earring (Arete) plant. At the time, many of us said we’d never seen an all-white fuchsia. Yesterday I went out to see it again and this is what I saw. That central white ball has turned red and I predict the “earring” will be the same.
Yolanda calls this flower an arete..or earring flower, so if she is correct, it is a white fuchsia, which I’d never seen before Pasiano brought me this plant. We’ll see what happens when that little round ball opens up. She’s probably right .
