Firecracker, firecracker

boom boom boom.

Ipomea lobata, also known as the Spanish Flag Vine or Firecracker Vine is bursting with color out of the rose garden annual border. This garden is chock full of beautiful vines. From the edible Mexican Sour Cucumber Vine (tastes like it's pickled already) to the Moon Flower, which I haven't seen blooming yet because its flowers open in the evening, to the Cup and Saucer vine (Cobaea scandens), pictured below. Makes me wish I had a trellis to grow something up.
