This spring I planted some wild Snapdragon Vine (Maurandya antirrhiniflora) from seed. They are supposed to grow to 3 ft or so. Mine aren't that big yet, but they did just start flowering. And they seem to be crazy drought tolerant. I just mulched them today, but they have been growing on bare earth and didn't seem to mind at all. Hopefully now that they are mulched, they will grow a bit faster for me.
This snapdragon vine is a delicate looking thing, but it's flowers are quite pretty. Here is the bloom:
And here are some photos of one of the dragonflies that frequent my garden:
They dart to and fro about the garden catching all those little annoying bugs for lunch. I am sure glad to have these dragon friends around!
