I always get excited when something I have planted gets multiple blooms. The little successes offset the discouragement of NO blooms on the pomegranate for example.Check this out! How many blossoms can you count? Quite a few, eh?
Let's get a little closer because they are sooooo pretty to look at.
Here is a veritable cluster of blooms. And they are so dainty, like crepe paper.
Once you look right into the middle, the stamens are really eye-catching. They coil so tightly, as they emerge from the lovely wine-coloured center.
O.k., lastly, let's get in behind the the bloom and see what it looks like from back there: utterly luminous against the blue sky.
A special thanks to Amy for introducing me to this vine!!
