Up on The Roof


It has been hazy all day so it was very difficult to take good shots.  I took the above two just before the sun went down.



My garlic vine (mansoa alliacea) is putting on the greatest show I have ever seen. The gazebo rooftop is completely covered with blooms and the only ones to take full advantage of this view are the birds. If only I were a bird up in a nearby tree! Have a great week my friends!

Hello Helen, how are you. I haven't seen you for a while, haha! You've been so busy a few months and weeks ago, now back to posting? OMG, i love your gazebo with a what do you call that something to nap on under it, swing? It really is so pretty, i wish i had a wider unshaded area to build something like that, i have a few of those 'swings' bought from different places. Your garlic vine looks so healthy. Oh when do you hold a party for us again!

It is indeed very romantic and lovely shed. Nice post. It feels like a fantasy.

Your gazebo rooftop certainly looks like a flower paradise now. By the way, Mansoa Alliacea is from the family of Bignoniaceae, which is vastly cultivated in China as an ornamental plant - my grandma also grows this specie on our rooftop.

do they flower continuously, as in yearround? is there a technique to keep them flowering constantly?
