The orange bell flower is quite typical of these parts—other colors in the
same family won't grow, only the orange one. The archway was quite bare some 15
years ago. It was made to support the vines. The relatively narrow stone pillars
were all cut by hand, which is a work of art in itself. You see, a 12-foot-tall
pillar like this can easily snap if hammered in the 'wrong' place. And, finally,
in the picture, you can see that there are two sister plants, so that one
day they will come together and form a complete loving embrace.
Each year I imagine that moment ...soon perhaps?
