trumpet vine

What you don’t see in this image of this trumpet vine at my Mom’s 
is the little hummingbird
that flew up to me and looked me over, as if to say, 
“What do you think you are doing around my flowers?” 
I’d like to be able to tell you that I got a photo of him, but such is not the case. 
I think this one will just have to do.
And, yes, Mom, 
I’ll send you a print….

  1. These are gorgeous flowers, actually the ones I want to have in my garden next year. Are they also called trumpet creeper? I've seen it in my new neighborhood and fell in love with it. I'm sure it's very attractive for hummingbirds.

  2. The first thing I thought of when I saw this image was hummingbirds! So, you see, they are in your photo even if they're not. They do love trumpet vine, and I've spent many happy (and frustrating) hours trying to capture just the right shot! 🙂
