Mandy’s favorite garden

Fast growing  Snail Vines

Fast growing Snail Vines

When we went on that garden tour, my daughter Mandy had her favorite place. They focused more on beautiful setting and flowers.

Mandy said that she would love to have this setting in her backyard someday. The vine is called “Snail Vine” because the flowers look like a cross between a snap dragon and a snail shape. There is nothing snail like in the way that this vine grew. You could almost see it growing while we stood there. BTW Momma picked up a big fat seed pod that was on the ground. Maybe we will all have snail vines next year.

Here was another idea that Mandy liked.


Steve remembered the bougainvillea from the spring tour.
