    I attended the local church's big fall Bazaar on Sunday.
    They had a multitude of plants/flowers available in the Silent Auction. I spotted one I just had to have. An old school-mate also had his eye on it... so the bidding war began. Luckily there was two plants, so we didn't have to get into a fight and we both went home happy. :-D

    Around here, the orange ones grow wild all over the place. This was the first yellow one I've seen. Such a pretty color... and I need some yellow blooms in the garden.

    I have a trumpet vine. It has grown for years on a corner of my house and is quite large. The main vine shoots up alongside the gutter, it's anchored to the house with a large eye and industrial strength plastic ties. Beyond the top of the porch roof it sprays outward, almost like a big beach umbrella. The color of the blossoms is a golden-yellow color. It has been planted for 10 -15 years. Not sure how long ago. When I originally put it in the ground I left it in the plastic container to keep the runners in check. That worked for years, but recently I have been finding sprouts up to twenty feet away. This is one of my best plants for drawing hummingbirds. I love it! Enjoy yours...the color of the flowers is lovely.

    I know they can become invasive... so I'm going to take my time and find the perfect spot for it. Can't wait until it is full of blooms and watch all the hummingbirds feed from it.

    Just the kind of plant for growing on a trellis, arch or wall. What a lovely thing it is and I hope you can find the right spot for it and that it thrives for you. :stew2:
