THE BLUE TRUMPET

My eastern back yard is brighter now.
This part is a shady area before, cause it got shade from the teak tree that grows on my neighbor's garden.
Several days ago he pruned the branches that made shade into my garden.
Some plants have died cause too much shade.
Now, the survivor looks better than before.
Look these blue trumpets...



One of the survivor is King's mantle (Thunbergia erecta).
More sunshine, so this plant is blooming.


Actually, it's just an old fashion plant.
On my childhood, this plant was usually used as a flowery hedge.
Intensive pruning makes the branching grows intensively.


I only grow this plant to be collected on my little garden.
I'm so happy that finally this plant get blooming.


Now, almost every day I can find the little blue trumpets are hanging on the slim twigs.
So lovely...

  2. Bunga ini memang cantik. Satu masa dulu semasa menyewa rumah saya pernah tanamnya diatas tanah. Begitu rimbun sekali.
