Bloomin' Tuesday-Bamboo fence

This butterfly vine was growing like gangbusters
on a bamboo tepee.


It started blooming again recently.
I think it gets its name because the shape of the dried blooms
resemble the flying beauties, not because it attracts them.

Recent winds toppled it
so I rethought its position.
This blue tub houses my attempt at composting,
but I really wanted to have a designated compost pile,
away from the eyes of the HOA.

The tepee was taken apart and with some remaining
bamboo not being used, this wall was created.

The twine is repurposed from our bales of pine straw mulch.

The vines wind easily around the stakes.

Blooms peek out and keep right on poppin'!

Along with creating a bit of privacy on this end of the yard,
the tepee's previous location
will contain the new compost pile.
There's always another project...

Have a lovely bloomin' day!
