Just like last year, the sweet potato vines are now flowering; it such a delicate pink/mauve colour.
Now, I had high hopes that this year I would get at least one pumpkin from the vine that came up by itself in the sweet potato patch.

My neighbour Tom, has large pumpkins which are almost ready to pick...but as you can see, it just isn't going to 'happen' for me.

A few weeks ago I saw that the passionfruit vine had more flowers and they have now developed into fruit so that's a 'win'. I never ceased to be amazed by this vine as it came up by itself and according to a local gardening expert, such vines rarely do well, let alone produce fruit in the first year. It's now into its third year and according to the experts it probably will die off soon. But they have been wrong before...lol
My alamanda vine (Cherry Ripe) is covered in flowers this year. It's an untidy looking plant but I just love the colour of those blooms. Hopefully after flowering I can work on getting it 'into shape'.
My next project in the garden is to tidy up under the new front stairs. It's just a mass of weeds at the moment; it's amazing the variety of weeds and they have grown there as if by magic. No photos...it's just too terrible :-)
