Lace Vine is in bloom

I haven't posted to the blog in a few weeks. This has been the hottest summer on record in our area and we haven't had a good rain in a long, long time. As a result, my lawn is brown and the few parts that are green are primarily crabgrass. I'm about ready to try a rain dance!
