This weekend, when it wasn’t raining, I sat on my front porch and gave a fresh coat of paint to two wicker chairs. I also did some touch-up painting on the pots. These pictures were taken last summer. Somehow I don’t think the Cathedral Bell vines are going to grow quite so wildly this summer. I guess I should have moved the vine, but I loved the way it overtook the chairs, causing people to perch gingerly on the chair’s edge.
This year, the Cathedral Bell vines are in different pots so I’m curious to see how they grow. At the moment, they are behaving themselves and growing dutifully around bamboo sticks. But I am predicting that, as soon as my back is turned, they will escape their confines and search for new places to roam.
I love these vines which are incredibly easy to grow from seed – big seeds! And usually all the seeds in the package germinate. So keep your fingers crossed for some sunshine this coming week and some blissfully happy vines!
