CONTRAST OF COLOURS OF FLOWERS IN SUMMER (夏の花色のコントラスト)


Trumpet vine (Campsis radicans) was planted more than ten years ago
beside a tall tree (Castanopsis).
It had climbed up to the top of the tree,
and had been bearing many flowers in summer.
We fell the tree in February 2016,
and the the trumpet vine has been standing alone since that.
It is quite vigorous and many shoots has grown continuously,
and now it is flowering splendidly.
The contrast of its red colour with a light lavender colour
 of chaste tree flowers looks nice.
Sunny hot days are continuing in the western part of Japan,
and we must water our gardens every evening.




Looking back at the trumpet vine flowers from outside of the fence.
フェンスの外側から見たノウゼンカズラの花
アメリカノウゼンカズラはもう10年以上も前に椎の木の脇に植えました.
そして木のとっぺんまで這い上がって毎年夏に花を咲かせていました.
この椎の木を去年の二月に切り倒しましたが、
ノウゼンカズラはそれ以来自立しています.
とても成長が旺盛で、ずっと新しい枝を伸ばし
今すばらしい花を咲かせています.
この赤い色とセイヨウニンジンボクの淡いラベンダー色の
色の対比がなかなか素敵です.
晴れて暑い日が西日本では続いていて
毎日夕方に庭に水遣りが必要です.
