Birthday Bloom

This is a vine plant that monica got when we moved in here. It darn near died immediately. Steve encouraged me to save it and not throw it out. Now it is back in full force, and under attack by caterpillars. This is the first bloom it has had. Today is also my birthday! I'm 32.

I have since gotten a bunch more plants. This one was my first plant though.


lisey: Happy Birthday!

a garden nursery they will sell you preying mantis's that will eat your caterpillars. that's a beautiful bloom.
Paul Germanos: Happy Birthday, Austin! I envy your youth. And I look forward to seeing more-and-more beauty in your life, in the years to come…
sean dreilinger: happy birthday austin!

is it a passion flower?
dw33by: hope you had a happy birthday :)
sdbrown: Holy smokes, I didn't realize that that was one of the barely-hanging-on-to-life ones. Good work, man!
