Green Thumb Sunday

Bloomfest 2007 is finally here!! The Brugmansia decided that Thursday night was the ideal time to make a grand entrance into the world....lucky for me my husband was out in the yard and smelled the intoxicating aroma. He came in to ask me what might be blooming that would smell so wonderful, and I immediately sprang to my feet....knowing that it was Brug time!! Boy are they beautiful, really worth the wait.

Up close Thursday night!! Glad my neighbors didn't freak out with me lurking in the yard in my pajamas with my camera and all !!

Then on Friday morning after some light rain, more skirted in appearance and definitely fully colored and a much deeper shade of pink...and I think I was still in my pj's.

So now its time for me to figure out what my next Green Thumb Sunday Subject will be. I believe it will probably bounce back and forth between a few different things for the next month or two....... see you next week for the next Green Thumb Sunday saga !!

Thanks Guys!! I am so thrilled that I actually kept this guy here's to hoping that I can figure out a way to overwinter it. If I do, next seasons Green Thumb Sunday Brug-Fest should be even better!!
