Vine Allure...

Come on in for a little garden treat...


You can have the diamonds...
I'll have the flowers, please


the flower vine I planted by my potager gate...
is bursting with gorgeous "lilac pink" 
(that sounds prettier than "purple")
trumpet flowers of some kind
pretty terrible, isn't it? when I can't even name flowers in my own garden
they are probably just what they are...purple trumpets
enlighten me if you know


they add so much vibrancy around the green foliage and brown wood


they do have an interesting way of opening up...
kind of like they want to stay asleep a little while longer


never really coming out of their dreamy state


looking a little shy...
to come out fully and play with the world around them


it seems to be part of the nature of this pretty vine flower...


and I love it
this one below dropped right back to sleep for more dreams


and while the flowers were lazily looking pretty...
this sweet creature was captured with his wings coming up


the honey bees were busy...
and I managed to catch this one in the act


yep...
go right ahead and take that nectar back to the hive, tiny bee...
you'll be sharing that honey on Pilgrim's Farm soon


okay, one more shot of that lilac pink trumpet, please
ah yes...
they are raising their pretty little heads towards the garden to see what they can see


all of this is the glorious handi-work of God!
yes indeed...
you can have the diamonds...
I'll have the flowers

May your day, or night be filled with God's glorious grace.
