Thank you Donna. These photos were taken by a man named Tom who has become a friend of mine. It has a cute story behind them. One day I came out to the garden and here was a man kinda hiding in the bushes. I was a little perplexed. I looked a little further and he was holding this huge camera. I said "hello" to him "can I help you?" His excited reply was, "there are hummingbirds here". "I know" I said. "This is a hummingbird garden". "Oh, is this yours?" And so it goes... He is a neighbors brother with a new camera. He and his wife now come to visit during peak hummingbird activity times. He enjoys shooting the pictures and I get to have free photos of my garden. It's a win, win situation for us.

Gardenboy, that passion vine is just gorgeous. I wish that I lived further south so that I could grow them.

Donna, that is 'Hot Lips'. Right now it looks like it is wearing it's lipstick. This plant does change colors depending on how much direct sunlight it gets. Sometimes it will be all white and others all red. Sometimes you will have a combination of all three mixes on the plant at the same time. Pay attention to the plant after some dark dreary days and you will see the flower colors change. I find that this one is a hummer favorite.

Hint: This one is VERY EASY from cuttings.

Anna's like my winter-blooming shrubs, and they are high enough
that they are not in danger from cats.

Arbutus unedo, Lonicera standishii, Rosemary, several Grevilleas

I'm inspired by your photos. Will I brave the rain to take photos next year?

My very territorial hummingbird just LOVES her some Jacob Cline! (Other monardas will do, in a pinch.)

Hardiness zone for passion vines are 9b to 11. They can withstand up to 25 degrees. They will bounce back in the Spring if placed in full sun.
