Clippings from Hummingbird-Trumpet Vine

Took root and growing

Vine growing rapidly

Requires constant weeding

.

Three bird feedersNo exaggeration:The planter needs constant weeding! With three feeders, bird seed germinates–and sprouts–almost as fast as I remove it. If and when the vine blooms, it is close to the Hummingbird feeder.Exclamation mark red with stick figureQuestion mark with stick figure Did I hear the question “Why the grill?” Because the squirrels love to dig in my planters!!
