Lady's Slipper Vine
A "pair" of Lady's Slippers in detail
Only a few months in a year do I have the pleasure of showering amidst the blooms of the Lady's Slipper Vine (Thunbergia mysorensis), now mesmerizing me as I wash myself after a long day of gardening. The morning sun side of the toilet & shower area is partly open to the elements so oen can easily see the assorted plants we grow outside it. We have trained the vine to climb a wooden trellis bordering the enclosure and now that it's flowering season, they are lined up in different stages of bloom, pendulously hanging like small tropical chandeliers.
