Hyacinth Bean Vine ~

This flower looks alot like snapdragons...it's a climbing Purple Hyacinth Bean Vine. It's been raining off and on so far today. The purple flower actually belongs to my neighbor but has climbed and made it's way over to my side of the fence...and I don't mind one bit.  When I returned from an errand this morning, I couldn't resist taking several shots of this sweet smelling, pretty, purple flower, moist from a recent rainfall.


  1. Love the rain drops! Great shot! I can almost smell them!

  2. Thank you Carol, As I was taking the photo, the fragrance was very strong and wonderful. I honestly did not know what these flowers were until I did a search on them...learned something new today!

  3. Almost too perfect for words. Terrific photo, Gini! I wish we had some color like that in these parts... still dingy gray snow cover. :-(

  4. Thank you Jasia...you are too kind and I am glad you like it. I was actually surprised at myself and how well this photo came out. I have only been using my Canon Rebel for a short time, and know very little on how to use it! I didn't have to crop or do anything to the photo itself.

    We have very little changes in our weather here. Honestly, sometimes I would love some snow or rain, but I can see how it would get old having too much of it. Sending and posting as much color and sunshine as I can for ya!
