With ligh rain every day, these vine looks their best in summer time. Don't you like those hanging vines with the orange blooms?
I was also greeted by the cosmos, which is a faithful self-seeder I have here. Their blooms always look cheerful in the morning sun.The wild rose on the arbor also tried to say "Hi". This is one of the few roses that I have planted in TSV. Although it does have black spots, it produces clusters of blooms that look very very pretty. I hope after this rainy season, the canes will completely cover the arbor. Then I will cut back the water shoots to encourage side growths and blooms.
A little further in the back of the yard, I have a 'look-alike' morning glory, which a friend on GW identified it as "Grandpa Tot". But it has 'split' leaves instead of the 'round' leaves I normally see in morning glory plants on the net. So I don't really know if it is a 'true' morning glory or not. Anyway, the blooms look similar, don't they?
Although I have to travel long hours (7 hrs) to reach TSV every other week, my weariness disappears when I see all the blooms in my garden.
