Hello and welcome to my corner of Georgia at Red Roof Farm. My blog is about the things that make me the most happy...family, home, church, collecting primitive antiques, junk ( I mean treasure) hunting, decorating, getting my hands dirty outside, an assortment of crafts and making stuff. Whew!!! As if I need more to do with a full time job of teaching. I grew up on an 85 acre farm where we raised cows, hay and an occasional ruckus. Now, we raise horses, flowers, vegetables and kids. I hope to someday make a living from home, but I can't quit my day job just yet. Thanks for stopping by!!

Rain and the hummingbird vine

We finally had some rain Sunday and again yesterday here in North Georgia. It's amazing how a little bit of moisture will make the blooms suddenly appear. This is a picture of a hummingbird vine or cypress vine as it is commonly called that has been rambling on my porch steps and across the rails all summer. It has not bloomed very well until Monday. I don't put out hummingbird feeders (I forget to fill them up and really have no time). I would rather rely on plants to bring the hummers in. Be careful though, it can certainly take over a small area but what a show it can put on!
