I took these photos from my friend Jacqui's backyard two years ago. There was this trellis attached to the fence that served as a barrier to give cover to a cute shed as a detached laundry room with utmost privacy.

This vine beautifully climbs to the trellis having broad green thick leaves that blooms in scarcity. The redness of which is bright yet soft and the closed stamens flash like a little incandescent bulbs. Jacqui was not home at the time I took these photos and for some reason, it did not occur to me to ask her the name of this floral vine.

I tried searching for this flower via google to no avail. I am not sure if this is local or imported vine but it was the first time I saw this kind. The petals of the flower alone made me think of Tinker Bell and Peter Pan as my imagination went far to Neverland.

Hmm those flowers looks like golden trumpets only it's red. We also grow them in the garden the yellow and the pink ones. Have a nice weekend Bonnie.

Beautiful shots.

Hi Bonnie, thank you for your comment. I understand. This is a very spectacular flower; I think it is a kind of Mandevillea, but I am not sure which one. Some have ribbed leaves and huge flowers. The dark pink one could be "Red Riding Hood"
smaller flowers and shiny leaves.
It looks lovely on the white trellis.
