As mentioned in previous posts, gardening is second on my list of hobbies. Today I am showing two flowers currently in bloom in my back garden.
This water lily is the second pink one that has bloomed in my pond this year . I particularly like this photo as you can see the drops of rain water on the petals and leaves. Click on photo to get a better look.
This is a Brugmansia, a friend gave me a 12 inch cutting last Fall, telling me to keep it in the basement, watering it occasionally during the Winter. Bring it up into the sunshine early Spring and put it outside when all danger of frost is over. After following these instructions the cutting has rewarded me with some beautiful flowers, the photo does not do them justice. It is a delicate pink, at the outer edge, changing to a pale yellow at the base of the flower. If I had children or pets I would not grow this plant as it can be toxic if ingested.
