Brugmansia-Angel Trumpets Are In Bloom


I have been putting off taking pictures of the gardens since my cameras battery compartment door is broken and taping it up is a hassle and a royal pain in the neck! I broke down and accomplished the feat this morning since some terrific storms went through last night and everything was glistening with rain drops at sunrise. Just too beautiful to pass up! This Brug was started from a cutting over the winter and placed out this spring. Sat there forever during the drought since I was busy with a full house and couldn't remember to water as I should have...after the drought ended it took off like a rocket and you see the results.

Brugmansia! So beautiful! Mine is just going into a long winter hibernation...

Thanks a lot! I took cuttings of all my Brugs two weeks ago but we have only had one light frost since then so they are attempting to re-grow. ;-) Brugs are one of my easiest and most loveable plants here at the jungle. They are almost "native" in the way they enjoy the climate and soil conditions.
