The rising sun glows through these Mexican Flame Vine, Senecio confusus, blooms. Twining around the arbor placed just outside the backporch, this vine draws bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds.
Blooms have been non-stop since late spring, but the cooler temperatures have ushered in a fresh flush of flowers.
More pumpkin colored blossoms are found on the Tecoma stans 'Orange Jubilee' planted against the back fence. It's another continually flowering plant that has ramped up its production of blooms with the cooler days.
Trumpet shaped blooms attract the flying, flitting, and buzzing creatures that bring life to a garden.
Parrot Beak, Heliconia psittacorum, love their spot under the drip from the rooftop. These rhizomes disappear when winter weather arrives, but as soon as spring warms the ground they come back and bloom beginning late summer through fall.
This colony grows larger every year and that is just fine with me. Standing only two feet high they make a great groundcover for a shady spot in the garden.
Many other flowers are just beginning to set buds now that it is fall. There are red, purple and yellow blossoms getting ready to burst forth. I hope you'll stop back by to see the rest of what fall brings to my garden.
