Angel Trumpet Blooming
This plant was put in the ground on Easter weekend. That is the weekend that Prince Charming & I built these little planters beside the steps on the patio. My neighbor, Mrs. Green Thumb, gave it to me. She had wintered it in her basement and it was no taller than 18 inches and had MAYBE 2 or 3 leaves on it.
You can't tell that now!
It was hot today (not as TERRIBLY hot as it HAS been) and then it rained off & on all day & then got hot again. So? You are seeing fog AND it's nearly dusk ....but I think you can see it well enough. (?)
I needed a size comparison, becasue nobody believes me that this Angel Trumpet plant is 6 foot tall. As you can see, Prince Charming is standing next to it & it's taller than him - he's 5'9".
They smell SO beautiful. Wonderfully fragrant.
These blooms were a beautiful site to see, this week especially.
