orange trumpet creeper | pyrostegia venusta

As much as I admire that other orange winter spectacle the unmistakeable Orange Flame Creeper (Pyrostegia venusta) there is something sinister about it.

It seems to spring out of nowhere. Dark and unnoticed without a single flower while it's warm. Then bang. It reveals it's this massive thing that's completely smothering everything it's touched.

And despite my conversion to orange, there's something a bit off about that orange over that particular green of its leaves.

But still, what a sight!

Next posts will be from England.

Orange is meant to be a sign of beauty, so I heard recently. So it is saying here I am, and aren't I ever beautiful. It is not ready to show it's true colour until it can make a statement which you have already mentioned is often when it has taken over. Sounds like some people I know. Maybe plants and people are more alike than we realise.
