Trumpet Vine

I took these shots at my father-in-law's backyard. His trumpet vine is blooming already but mine isn't yet. I guess that the nectar of this particular flower is sweet because ants love em (just my theory lol).

I like the other color of trumpet vine.. orange. Mine is yellow too. I think that a combo of yellow and orange will be great when they bloom together.

See the bee enjoying her treat?

How about these ants?

Mother bee is busy..

  5. Oh, I just love these pics! Yellow is my favorite color, and trumpet vines are marvelous!! I think they're also good for attracting humming birds, do you ever see those there?

  15. I think most nectar are sweet kasi ants and bees, butterfly and other insects love sucking it.
