Welcome! As "Annie in Austin" I blog about gardening in Austin, TX with occasional looks back at our former gardens in Illinois. My husband Philo & I also make videos - some use garden images as background for my original songs, some capture Austin events & sometimes we share videos of birds in our garden.
Come talk about gardens, movies, music, genealogy and Austin at the Transplantable Rose and listen to my original songs on YouTube. For an overview read Three Gardens, Twenty Years. Unless noted, these words and photos are my copyrighted work.
Two annual vines are growing on the NE fence, winding themselves onto twine that was threaded through some metal eyelets. The individual flowers last just a day, but keep coming for a long time. The white one is Moon Vine, Ipomoea alba, opening at night and scented. The blue one is Clitoria ternatea, usually called Butterfly Pea or Blue Pea Vine, which opens in the daytime, but was still intact as the moon vine opened.
