Taunting Mother Nature
The weather in Tucson this Fall and early Winter has been a contrast in seasons. We have had a few nights where it has almost gotten down to freezing and I've had to lug out sheets to cover up my tender plants. We've also had afternoons in the 90s- glorious warm sunshiny days that I want to bottle up and keep forever. As if taunting Mother Nature and Winter right around the corner, my Brugmansia has finally decided to bloom again. It has grown huge in the last year, but only bloomed once last Spring. The flowers start out yellow- turn white when they first open and then get progressively pinker. Once these blooms are done I plan on cutting this little tree way back and sharing some of it. If anyone is interested in a branch let me know.
