Back Yard, July


Winter sunshine brings 
orange trumpet vines
curling and waterfalling
over my fence,
their tubular blooms
upthrusting, pointing towards
deep blue sky,
cold bright light.

    1. Oh yes, I always forget that our winter sun is not such a regular phenomenon in other countries.

  5. This made me quite jealous Rosemary, now that I live in an apartment having left climbing plants behind.

    1. It also depends a bit exactly where in the Southern Hemisphere. I live in the sub-tropics. More southerly parts of Australia are quite a lot colder.
