In case you haven't figured it out yet, I am fascinated by colors in flowers. I wanted to write a senior undergrad paper on the color sequence of flowering but I couldn't find enough information on it. Maybe now that I know how to research a little better I should try that again, I still want to know which colors of plants bloom when and why. But right now, I am busy tending flowers and gardens and the greenhouse. I did take a minute and photograph some current blooms around the greenhouse and home.
Behind the greenhouse there is a tall fence covered in Carolina Jessamine (Gelsemium sempervirens) bursting into bloom. Many people mistakenly call this jasmine. There were shiny, round black bees and some moths feeding on the flowers but none of the insects would cooperate with the camera. I also can't capture the wonderful scent of the yellow trumpets.

Before I log out I also want to take a minute to thank everyone for visiting my posts. I should have a thousand page-views sometime this week. Blogging and writing is something that I have wanted do for a long time, thanks for sharing the journey!
