With trumpets and sound of cornet make a joyful noise before the Lord, the King...For thou Lord hast made me glad through thy work: I will triumph in the works of thy hands. Psalms 98: 6 ~ 92: 4

We used to see lots of trumpet flowers running up the vine on the tall tree but they are not doing as well this summer with just this grouping on the lower section of the tree.. Regardless it is good to see that some made it through to sound their triumph after our long endless winter..

The few trumpets that grew
Had purpose to grow, as an ant...
Both knew to make it through
They had to be triumph'ant.....
Poetry by me AJP

Thank you very much Geoff Plant for the spotlight on August 21, 2014...Very appreciated!

    Love to see trumpet vine flowers! They're just a little too rampant for me to plant them, though. Nice rendition!

    Well captured!! I love trumpet vine, but we mostly see it in the wild along country roads. The spent stamen on that one bloom looks like a boom microphone for the little ant. :-)

    Love the red trumpet flowers! I see the ant : ). Around here, the wasps love trumpet shaped blooms,. We have a cross vine and the blooms are trumpet shaped. We discovered that many wasps were in the blooms so we are going to get rid of the vine.
