But yesterday as I glanced out the kitchen window something scarlet caught my eye. Now, I have white and cream flowers, pink and cerise flowers, purple and blue flowers, and yellow and orange flowers. Very few, maybe one other that I can think of right now, of my flowers are SCARLET. A touch of scarlet amongst a sea of green just excites, doesn't it. It evokes impressions of some exotic tropical place. Somehow a trumpet creeper vine had managed to sneak its way up the raintree, and, there at the end of the vine, suspended in midair, was a cluster of blooms! It is pretty. Here is a shot I took this morning.
Love or hate, that plant inspires passion.
