Here’s my 3rd and final installment of a series of photos of my garlic vine flowers also known as the garlic creeper. The soft and silky flowers are deep lavender or purple and as they mature it fades to pale lavender then to white. The flowers are bell shaped and NARROW down like a funnel revealing their bright yellow styles. They are very attractive to insects like bees and butterflies and even ants couldn’t resist its nectar.
The cascading flowers are so pretty.
My garden comes alive when they are in full bloom. Passers by couldn’t help but ADMIRE these charming and dainty flowers.
No worries about the garden smelling like garlic as the heavy flowers don’t really smell like garlic. Only when pruning the stems or crushing the leaves that the garlic scent could be noticed.
This plant was given to me by my mother and she said that old folks believe that it drives away evil spirits and snakes. True or not, they are really very rewarding as they adorn my fence with dazzling colors.
What else makes me happy? Ashton! He is my laptop buddy for today. Took a photo before he takes a nap.
