Floral Friday Challenge.

In early January this year I posted photos of this plant which was flowering merrily in our garden.

Quite colourful and still young, neither of us knew its name.

Didn’t want to rush things!

    • Apparently ours is a climber that is definitely not going to climber anywhere. We inherited two climbers in our first house. One was an ivy type of thing on the old external dunny (toilet) which sent its roots into the concrete wall and pulled the paint off. The other wrecked a fence> Enough said.
