Gated community

Never the twain shall meet. On one side of the gate is a tremendous, sprawling single plant of hyacinth bean; on the other, a selection of clockvines (thunbergia alata) blooming in various colors. The clockvine flowers are in cream, pale yellow, orange-yellow, and a sort of apricot, all with black centers. The hyacinth bean is still blooming slightly and there are a few pods of ripened seeds on it. This is the plant that never produced purple pods, just purple flowers, and that stinks mightily.
