Our hosts welcome us at the garden gate:

This beautiful purple vine can become a tree! It is a PODRANEA RICASOLIANA (also known as Pink Trumpet Vine, Port St. Johns Creeper, Zimbabwe Creeper, Queen of Sheba)

 

Notice how nicely the Caladium blends with bromeliads and succulents.

 

 

 

Guests begin to arrive and set up the buffet.

Ted asks for a cutting from the Podranea vine, but digs up a major sapling with a huge roo (in his left hand)t. That’s some “cutting,” Ted!

 

Many thanks to Mary Chan and Barbara Smiley for augmenting the photos taken by Katherine Poehlmann for this collection.
