Photo Share: Trumpet Vine Tree

Evan's assignment today was to take the camera and find something interesting in nature. He came back with the Trumpet vine bloom. I asked what caught his eye and he said because it was a weird tree.

I've trained my Trumpet vine to climb a pole and go around and around until it looks like a tree. You don't have to be gentle. Wack, Wack it back and twist tie it into a shape. It seems the harsher I treat it the more it blooms. This year was the best.

Good observation Evan!

This was another fabulous observation by my guest blogger and nephew Evan. I hope you look forward to these posts as much as I do. And if you or any of your kids or grand-kids want to guest blog about something in nature, send it to it to bloubird@gmail.com with a description and permission to post it. We would love to share your child's thoughts and experiences with the outdoors.
