This gallery contains 2 photos. A late bloomer, this scarlet trumpet vine started flowering late … during the second week of September. Photographed in my backyard in the early evening of September 8. With their irresisitibly sweet nectar, trumpet vines compete for the attentions of hummingbirds, wasps, bees, and ants.
Trumpet vine flowers only last for a few days … fleeting beauty. This golden trumpet vine was photographed on a sunny August 30 afternoon at Piper Spit (Burnaby Lake) in Burnaby, with a couple of ants putting in a cameo. The bokeh effect was unintentional. 😀
