Revolution Day in Chacala

These are growing at my new place. Don't know what they are.
I am still not really up to speed with posting. But here are some photos of stuff around Chacala.
This is Markito, dressed at Pancho Villa for Revolution Day.

Here are some photos of flowers at my new place. I don't know what they are.
Here is a view from my new place. If I already posted these photos, sorry. I am hurrying to do this, and not feeling very organized.

Hi! Lovely flowers & pictures, as always!
The blue/violet flowering plants look like water hyacinth (Eichornia crassipes) -- though usually a floater (and clogger of water-ways), it can be grown in moist soil(as yours seems to be). I think it's one of the loveliest of flowers.
The white-flowering vine LOOKS like a species of Clerodendrum, possibly C. thomsoniae (bleeding heart vine) -- its more like a sprawly shrub than a vine, but does climb (of course i could be wrong about these --hard to tell from a single picture.

I think it is bleeding heart vine as well. They do great here in Tampa Florida. It was sort of weedy at my old house. I don't have any in my new place, but I see people growing it as a climber on mailboxes. The postmen don't like this too much 'cause of bees.
