Meanwhile in Ponce de Leon
In Florida, we have Fire Ants. No getting around it. If you're a gardener, this can cause a lot of problems. If you garden in containers, the ants will eventually find their way to them. Especially after a lot of rain like we've had for the past week. Fire ant hills...
The local paper did a story on my obsession.
I fell head over heels in love with Sweet Fantasie this fall. I hadn’t heard of it until it was offered for sale on Facebook. I looked at some pictures. I thought, “Wow! What a lovely white double.”
This is a cross of Brugmansia Sam x Kyle’s Giant White. If I had a better camera you could see the pink edges. This beautiful brugmansia decided to bloom on my birthday.
If you ever see a Painted Lady brugmansia in full bloom, you’re not likely to forget it. She blooms in massive flushes.
I am ashamed to say that I had this in the “slowpoke” section as it is two years old and hadn’t bloomed yet.
