Of flowering climbers

The jade vine is flowering once more and astonishing the guests at Native Place with its unusual color and stunning grace. The pepper vines are loaded with pepper and the mystery climber at the front entrance trellis also continues to flower, its hanging candelabra like bracts adding yet another shade of excitement to the Native Place Garden.

Butterflies are out in large numbers too floating about merrily sipping nectar from a variety of flowering plants we have grown especially to attract them.

This gardener has a lot to be happy about and grateful for. The sun, the rain, the flowers, the birds, the bees, and butterflies
