And So It Grows….

You may recall that one of my favorite  plants is Black-eyed Susan vine (thunbergia). After discovering it a few years ago, I look for it every spring. This year, I bought several to plant in different areas of our yard. One of my favorite places to plant it is on our deck, where the plant can grow up this old-looking weathered white trellis. This photo was taken on May 19.

Apparently I’m not the only one who thinks this is a good location.

  1. Beautiful! Obviously they are “happy campers” there on your deck! Nothing says summer like black-eyed susans on a trellis.


  2. Looks like the vine thinks it has a prime location…really has flourished!

  3. Just beautiful. But then you have the green thumb!

  4. That vine knows where to grow. I’ve had a time this summer cutting the kudzu and keeping it out of the azaleas. Lovely series of photos.

  5. My black-eyed susan you gave me on gate is really blooming now. Next year I will definitely plant where can it can go as hight as it wants! The little vines just growing straight up from gate with no support, waving in the wind.

  6. I learn something new every day, as I never knew there was a BES Vine! WOW! Absolutely stunning! And yes, it loves this location!

  7. For you:
    This is a paperback book.
    Very pleasant, the title said:
    Head up particularly comforting.
    Patience is the sister of hope and the mother of serenity.
    Starlight is reflected only in a quiet pond.
    Sincerely Andrea and many hugs.

  8. Yes, it is very happy there!
    Good Morning!
