    Thanks so much for posting the page. It means a lot to me as you know.
    Dale is watching over us. We’re getting snow now and through Sunday but
    then Monday and Tuesday during the day will be good weather with a
    chance of snow again Tuesday night into Wednesday.. Perfect timing. It
    is also sooo eerie that the blossom faded today when Mom passed last

    This is a beautiful flowering tree, with an elegant bloom, a gentle scent, and a tough-as-nails indomitable spirit. Perfect choice to represent a mother’s love and loving memory. My deepest sympathy on your loss.

    OK, now we’ve had our two weeks of winter in the desert; very soon spring growth will begin. Stay strong, little Brug–more loveliness and beauty shall be yours soon!

    Looking good there Miriam. Even with the feeling of winter.

    The Brugmansia’s I planted are still all looking good. I will have a few for next year. I am so happy.

    Miriam, you are increasingly making me jealous or at least yearning for the
    garden season to begin. It is cold and grey.

    Love your Brugmansia! My poor Brug is being eaten alive by green cabbage loopers :-( I have to pull out the Spinoside to get rid of the little buggers. Guess the variegated varieties are especially susceptible. Very lovely color, just love it!
