Meet my Garden Angel.

A sweet neighbor had some beautiful Angel Trumpets (Brugmansia) growing in her
yard last year and shared some cuttings with me. I rooted them and planted
them this spring. I was able to grow the white ones and the yellow ones. (I'll try the
pink ones again, next year). I have also planted a red one, but it has not bloomed.
It was sent to me by a friend at Plant Traders. They are not hard to root and have a
wonderful fragrance, that humming birds love.

  1. Love your garden angel!
    Thanks for stopping by again :-)

  2. Hi, Sandra, and thanks for the sweet words on my blog. I know exactly where Southaven is, and have been there several times. I live in Bay, just south of Jonesboro. We were actually in Hardy last Saturday. We wanted to see some fall color in the foliage, but the leaves weren't showing much color then. Since the frosts the last several mornings our leaves are beginning to finally turn a little more.

    Thanks for the visit, and feel free to visit any time. :-)

  3. Hi Sandra!!
    My good friend Pam lives in OB, not far from you! I lived in Arlington, Tn where I left my Angel Trumpet and all the other beauties I dearly miss!
