The day started out pleasantly cool but heavily overcast.That combination worked well for me since I had to clean and detail my old trusty compact so I can sell it. As I was returning from the car wash I passed a few Trumpet Vines at the corner of our property. After wiping down the dash and interior I took a stroll and got these captures. I took this with my little Canon PowerShot S3is.

We had a big trumpet vine by the corner of our porch of the house I grew up in in South Dakota. I think we’ve talked about this before.. Fabulous ant group portrait as well.
Thanks Judy! I believe the Ants and the Vine are sharing in a co-op type of existence. I have never seen one without the other. Has this been your observation as well?
I had forgotten that, but you are right… I do remember them to be crawling with ants..which might be a South Dakotaism. Have you ever heard anyone describe something as being “crawling with” before??Sounds like the flowers themselves were crawling.
We used it growing up in Hoosier land.
