That vine looks so small and delicate for such large blooms. The colors are just gorgeous. Love your photos especially those macros.

The creeper indeed is the proper name for them. They always know how to come back. Great shots of them. Have a great week. Lynne

Deb said...

I love those my Mon has them so pretty

SweetMarie said...

The Creeper is really pretty! Better pretty then ugly since it will never go away. LOL These are fantastic photos!

Beautiful flower. there should be some humming birds and butterflys floating around the flowers.

Kathy said...

My gracious!!!! LOOK at those details you captured!!! Amazing!

Actually, me-thinks most stuff likes to be hacked back. At least, all the stuff I used to have fun with hacking back, grew like topsy, after. Kind of a futile effort.

This spring I didn't hack. We have a full-fledged "Sleeping Beauty's Castle" look. -chuckle-

Gentle hugs,
"Auntie"

Thanks so much for sharing these awesome images! Just lovely! Hope you have a good day.

TexWisGirl said...

it is lovely. the grasshoppers decimated mine here this summer down to woody vines. it is slowly pushing out a few leaves again but no blooms this year.

Cranberry Morning said...

What a beautiful vine and flower! Thanks for the cheery photos this morning. :-)

Amy Burzese said...

We have one too. I crops up all over. I put it there against my husband's wishes. Oh, well.

Stunning macros, thanks for sharing for Macro Monday.

Susannah said...

Pretty colors....beautiful pictures. Are you feeling pretty good today?

Madi and Mom said...

Hugs Madi and Mom

George said...

Your macros are marvelous, and the blossom is beautiful. I can sympathize with Bob, however, since I fight creepers up here. Unfortunately ours aren't as pretty as yours.

Ruth's Photo Blog said...

Beautiful. I especially like the ones with the dark background.

Cheryl @ The Farmer's Daughter said...

You get the most amazing macros! Beautiful! I've still not been able to do that with this camera, I don't know if it's the camera or the photographer. :)

Pam :) said...

Your Flame vine is stunning, Sandra. We learned the only drawback is their creeping where they are not wanted.

Betsy Adams said...

That's what Creepers do---they CREEP.... ha ha .... Great pictures... They really are pretty... Hope our Clematis starts 'creeping' again. It didn't bloom this year, so we cut it back.
Hugs,
Betsy

Rose said...

But they are so beautiful...I cannot resist taking photos of it.

EM Illustrator said...

Beautiful pictures and I love your new header photo. Lovely reflections! Hope you're having a great day! Mine is nearly over...

Kim @ Stuff could... said...

I love to see your flowers...even if it is a vine:)

Relindis said...

That's a gorgeous flower on that creeper.
It seems to have a personality and being a creeper I can just imagine it creeping.
The macro shot where you can see the pollen are great!

Levonne said...

Look at all your followers' comments! How very wonderful! Love the texture in that last shot.

Ann said...

A creeper makes it sound like something sinister but it's too pretty. Obviously Bob must think it's a tad sinister though since he keeps chopping it back....lol
I like the new header picture

RoeH said...

It's a neat little plant and I love the blooms. I want them here. :)

Inger said...

You are truly an artist, this is just gorgeous. Do you know Jim at Ocean Breezes. I think it's oceanbreezes.blogspot.com He is also working on the most gorgeous flower and nature photos. You would enjoy his blog.

photowannabe said...

Perhaps it is a Creeper but it sure is pretty.
I love the various shades of orange and red.

Miss Debbie said...

Beautiful! Like your new header picture, too!

Val said...

Do these bring in lots of little hummers??

Dee said...

You should put together a flower book...:) Love the new header photo. ♥

Michaele said...

Still giggling about "the vine it road in on". And who said flowers were delicate?

Mamabug said...

I love these beautiful trumpet vines; the color is quite vivid. Great job on the macro shot!

Beatrice P. Boyd said...

Hi Sandra, just saw some of these trumpet vines the other day and took some photos with my little point & shoot digital for a future post...hmmm you bet me to it with these GREAT images, but I still might do one after waiting awhile. They DO creep everywhere and can be quite invasive.

Chatty Crone said...

What a beautiful CREEP! sandie

Tipper said...

So pretty and such amazing details you captured!

Creeper my be annoying to Bob but it sure has lovely color and blooms.
