I had to take a few more pix of "stuff" when I was walking around the yard the other day. Since it was a cloudy day, I think you can probably see how those couple of sweet potato vines have just gone insane.

That really looks great! What is the yellow flower?

Oh my, Anna your garden is stunning ... looks like you have a tropical paradise there in Wisconsin! Love the Sweet Potato Vines, you should add that photo to the database!: Sweet Potatoes (Ipomoea batatas) Love the pretty blooms of Popcorn Cassia (Senna didymobotrya) too!

Here are a couple more pix of the SP vines, from the front and side of the "circle". The pic in the first post was from the back, where the pot is sitting. You can see how the crazy things have just gone berserk.

I cut the pitcher plant back pretty hard because it was looking SO skanky. Look what it did............LOL

Beautiful, @AnnaZ! When you cut back your Pitcher plant were you able to propgate the cuttings? I need to do the same as mine. I had to keep hanging it higher and higher off the ground until now the sprinkler misses it!
