Trumpet's Last Blast
Jim and Kathy Snodgrass sent me this photo of their Angel's Trumpet (Brugmansia) which they have had for five years. It was a small rooted cutting when they purchased it and each year in the past, they moved it into their garage during the winter. It has survived and thrived but due to them moving to a new house, they have no space to put it. Also, it is so heavy that it is difficult to move. This particular Brugmansia is called 'Dr. Seuss' and Jim and Kathy sent me this photo after our recent dusting of snow. The plant is in all its' glory in full bloom as though it wanted to give one grand finale. Especially being in a pot, it is doubtful that it will survive the winter but Jim and Kathy can look back with many nice memories of the bloom 'Dr. Seuss' provided. Their title is appropriate, 'Trumpet's Last Blast'.
