Barn Charm: Gift On A Gate

Every spring, as I’m browsing local nurseries and greenhouses, one plant that I’m particularly looking for is thunbergia, also known as black-eyed susan vine.

This year, I bought one for my friend, Donna.

She planted it to grow on an old gate in her yard, and last week, she texted me with a picture and these words: “your gift on my gate”.

I love that her old barn, which I shared in a Barn Charm post last fall, is in the background.

    The black-eyed Susan vine is lovely on Donna;s fence and the barn in the back ground adds so much to the picture.

  13. The black-eyed susan vine looks right at home on her gate. Is the vine a perennial?

  14. Oh, I love that vine…had never seen it before to my knowledge.

  15. Love the barn peeking through the gate! I really like the black-eyed susan vine and have some growing most summers. I don’t have such a neat gate to have it creep up though.

  16. So pretty! What a wonderful gift 🙂

  17. That was a great idea to plant it by the gate… beautiful… great barn, too! =)

  18. Love the gate with the flowers in front of the great old barn.
