Clematis: Flower of the Day, Oct 7, 2018

From my friend Jackie’s beautiful garden.. still thriving in spite of the near (but not quite) freezing temperatures in Wyoming:

Golden Bougainvillea: Flower of the Day, Sep 25, 2018

This vine grows over my wall at the lowest end of the garden so I forget it is even there. Today I made quite a few new discoveries about my lawn and garden.  You’ll be seeing a few of them in the upcoming weeks. This is the first. I love this color and think I may have to plant another one in a spot where it is easier to see.

Pink Coral Vine: Flower of the Day, Jul 27, 2018

I have been admiring a lush vine like this one at the Chapala Society for 17 years. A few years ago, I put a few seeds from it into my pocket and scattered them in a spot where I’ve never been able to get any thing to take hold.  I’d tried a grape vine to no avail, so thought perhaps these could use the dead grape vines for support.  This year I noticed that they had bloomed. I took one of these photos then.  Today I took it at a later stage, more fully bloomed out.  For years, I’ve wondered what it was and I finally lucked out and found it on a website.  It is called a Pink Coral Vine, so when I forget that at a later date and label this as a mystery flower, you can remind me!
