The magnificent Bignonia

Arrangement # 103
Today I am enchanted by the popular climber,  bignonia ( Bignonia magnifica).
I have it grown over my aviary and is sure a vigorous climber.  When flowering and this happens very regularly, it produces big bell-shaped mauve-pink flowers.
Bignonia need to be planted in full sun and the sight of their flowers against the blue sky is indeed a joy to behold as often I sit by my verandah in the afternoon sipping my cup of  tea to the thought of its magnificence.
For all its splendour and rich colour i.e. both its flowers and its dark green leaves, I call this composition...
A Popular Splendour
