Datura metel

Family obligations have kept me busy, and since no one really wants pictures or comments on glue sticks or yellow highlighters, I’ve kept those gems to myself.  I think I’m back on track though (either that or I’ve just jinxed myself), with plenty of kibble for my pet blog.  The willow hedge was grown from cuttings taken from weeping willows around a local pond.  Situated at the sump pump outlet, they’ve flourished.  And are probably invading my foundation, I know.  The chaste tree supposedly was the anti-viagra for monks in the middle ages.  I’m doubting the USDA would approve of investigational studies for that, however. The datura metel (or angel’s trumpet) flock is also very poisonous, but since no UPS driver has perished on the front porch I’m thinking it’s probably OK.  The eucalyptus I’ve spoken of before- i’m actually very proud that it’s doing so well.  It’s in a protected spot with southern exposure.  The stephanotis is a 16 year old plant that puts out lovely waxy, white, heavenly scented blooms every summer.  As they are traditionally used in bridal bouquets, someday  I want to donate a bouquet to a summer bride 🙂
