Last year this section of the garden was totally re-done.
You may remember that happening here.
At that time, the entire garden bed was dug up, yanked out and hauled away.
Although it was clear the time had come, I was sorry to see some of the plants go.
Imagine my delight when one of those plants appeared in the new garden bed recently.
Despite all of the upheaval, this Cypress Vine must have dropped a seed that refused to be discarded along with the old tree and shrubs.
Even more amazing to me was the fact that it decided to root itself right next to the one and only shepherd's hook I placed in this bed.
What are the chances of that?
Over the past few weeks I have been watching it wind it's way up the pole. It is such a pretty plant with it's wispy delicate leaves.
Are you familiar with the Cypress Vine?
They are also known as the hummingbird vine because these guys love them:
The hummingbirds have been entertaining us at the feeders as they prepare for their fall migration.
As I've been watching the Cypress Vine grow, I've been keeping my fingers crossed that it would bloom before the hummingbirds had flown the coop.
Looks like Mother Nature had that base covered all along.
