Gentian Garden Tour 2012 - And Mother Nature Laughs

The Pipes, the Pipes are Calling

Aristolochia Dutchman's PipeThese make me laugh but then I have a juvenile sense of humor. Seriously, I have never seen so many precocious flowers on this very invasive vine. It is invasive but it is covering the fence for privacy and it works quite well. I have been told, more than once, that I have a bit of irreverence about me. The flowers on the Dutchman's Pipe may look like pipes to some. Not to me. They, along with my rooster tuteur Rooster tuteurare in the same area of the garden making it my own special Chanticleer or cockadoodle doo garden or just plain... never mind. You get the picture. I do love to laugh and hope you do as well. I am still preparing for the garden tour on June 2nd which might explain the lack of posts. Everything takes just a bit longer to get done this year but there is little I cannot do. Want to come to the tour? It benefits the Gentian Garden Club and you can get information on the tour here.  I would love to see you in my garden. Rain or shine. I will be here along with Cooper and Tucker.
