How these little black-eyed thunbergia made it from the front yard to this patch of bougainvillea in an island in the middle of my backyard, I’ll never know, but here they are visiting and making themselves at home.

You must see Cee’s beautiful purple clematis.

Shy Annes: Flower of the Day, Jan 6, 2018

 


If I were to name these flowers, I’d name them Shy Annes.  In reality, they are thunbergias.  Sweet little ladies. (Enlarge by clicking on any photo.)

Thunbergia: Flower of the Day, Sept 19, 2017.

I was late to the awards luncheon because I had to stop and take these photos of the wild tangle of tiny orange thunbergia winding around the bird of paradise plant. Please, Pasiano, don’t trim them away.  I love the jungle look. These ladies help to create it.

I love how these little Thunbergia guys twist and turn as they make their way through the foliage of other plants. They are real social climbers.

Orange Thunbergia: Cee’s Flower of the Day Challenge

Hard to believe that yes, this, too, is a thunbergia! I bought this plant years ago and had Pasiano plant it, but it was invisible–obscured by bougainvillea  and ferns.  I thought it had died out long ago, then yesterday I saw it  rising up from the thick undergrowth and twining up this wire at the entrance to my house.  Perfect!
