Thunbergia and Bougainvillea: FOTD Apr 4, 2019


The thunbergia seem to be advancing on the back yard. If the bougainvillea can’t defend themselves, then so be it.  I love the lushness and the contrast between the two.


For Cee’s FOTD.

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.
