Wild Orange Flower Vines in Our Garden

These gorgeous orange flowering vines are meandering wildly through part of our garden! A bit of research reveals the Wild Bitter Melon is not only beautiful but edible as well.  It pops open to reveal red seeds that are also edible.  I love it's bumpy texture!

This beauty is everywhere, falling over the stone wall and completely taking over a tree - it's fabulous!!
 It's amazing learning to garden in this tropical climate - SO different from New Brunswick!
happy sunday :)
