I look forward to every spring to see this lavender trumpet vine in full bloom. The flowers are a pretty lavender and they completely cover the whole bush. Look closely, I have them growing on a pair of old french doors. Some of the windows are missing in the doors and the vines are growing through them. The doors are on each side of a walk way which leads to one of the side yards. I wish you could see the detail in those doors, with all the small little windows but the vine is covering it.
Here is a shot of the flowers close up.In the front yard I have two rose bushes that greet all my guests before they walk up the front porch. These rose bushes are called Hot Shot. This is a arch way in the garden where I have red vine roses growing on it. I don't know why but the rose bush on the other side of the arch way doesn't bloom at the same time as the one on the right side. It might be because of the position of the sun during the spring months. I will have to remember that next time I position an arch way to plant roses!
This is a lavender Hibiscus tree bush I have growing by the Koi Pond
