    I think I would enjoy that walk also. Thanks for taking me a short way with you.

    That looks like a nice walk.
    I love Trumpet Vines and wish I could keep one, but I'm afraid of them. I have to be realistic and accept the fact that they grow too aggressively for a bleeding heart like me. I can't prune without wanting to save the clippings. That plant would tear down my house and take over the entire yard.
    Do you ever see or hear hummingbirds at the vine on your way to work?

    Beeker...no i didn't and was looking for them...i look at that vine everyday...it's all over her wall...but the bees & wasps sure love it though.. I may a bit too busy on the corner for them...a lot of cars on both sides of the wall. They are kind of taking over that wall along with the creeping fig all over it...but beautiful.

    You are welcome 2ofus..i like taking people on walks with me because I go on so many with others on here.. :)

    I too like the trumpet vine... but at someone else's home. :stew2:
    That's a lovely fountain! If I walked pass it on my way to work, I'd be consistently late. :D

    That is lovely. Do you walk to work every morning? How far is the walk?

    That must be wonderful. Bet your fellow workers wonder why you always walk in with a big smile.

    I have seen a couple of travel shows that were filmed in that part of Savannah, you have a beautiful walk to start your day.

    I'd leave extra early for work each day so that I could linger on my walk. I really love that fountain and wish I had the space for something like that in my garden.

    Those are pretty nice looking flowers to see on your way to work. The fountain, I especially like. I like fountains. They make me think of the Alhambra in Spain. ---A very romantic place.

    The fountain reminds me of the movie Three Coins In the Fountain.

    This is the first time I have seen the plant called Mexican Petunia. I like both the flower color and the shape of the leaves.
