Brugmansia in flower!
Hello to all!My camera needed new batteries,and yesterday at last i got them.So there is my brugmansia in flower.Sowed 26th January 2010.I had pink(10seeds) and white(10seeds) ,got from all 4 plants.One of them start grow after i did repot them 3,beside one plant.To this,I have label -'pink',how you see it white,i just think maybe i swap labels when repoted them.
No big works in garden last week,only tidy up and made more room in glasshouse for my fuchsias and pelargoniums.
Sorry ,picture not very good,to much light.
Bye-bye for now!

Little bulbous plant from South Afrika.Bought it last year,in Johnstown g/c.All summer it was in my glasshouse, under table without leaves.Was times when i wanted throw it out,because i didn't belive when i will see it green again.But usualy when i got it out of pot,i just fell sorry for this little thing and left it.Actualy it had roots all time.So,at end of summer i repoted it new pot,and now it have nice healty leaves.No idea how long time it will take untill it come in flower.Then will see.
