These are the flowers of the Trumpet Vine aka Campsis radicans. Look at me throwing out that Latin name, in italics, no less. Are you impressed? Doesn’t it appear that I know my stuff? Smoke and mirrors, dear readers, smoke and mirrors. This is yet another case of me knowing folks that know stuff. In this particular instance, it’s my friend Sue Avery that has helped me sound informed. Sue has been my go-to person for flowers for several years. She has her own blog which is beautifully written. None of this wiseguy commentary that you find in lesser blogs. I invite all of you to check it out. And don’t miss her archived posts which are equally wonderful. JK.
