I finally found 2 small plants of the cardinal flower vine last summer, after looking for a few years. I had heard that hummingbirds just love it. Unfortunately, I didn't find an arbor that I liked to plant it on til a few weeks after I bought the plants, so they never really flourished too much. BUT... I did manage to save some seeds, and these seeds were the fastest to germinate that I have ever tried. They literally popped up the day after I planted them in the peat pellets.

Well... it's been too cold this spring to plant them outside yet ters , and this morning this sweet little flower said hello to me. Isn't it cute? luv The entire open flower is only the size of a nickel. It is in the morning glory family.

Miss Jamie ~

It took a few seconds for the picture to come up for me this time. Photobucket has been acting weird all day - sorry about that.
