Remember a while back when I posted a picture of my trumpet plant with a giant white trumpet on it bigger than the plant itself? Cool, right?
Seven. Count them (click on the picture for the bigger version), seven trumpets. Look at how tiny this plant is! And it has seven flowers on it bigger than it is! Notice how the three older flowers have taken on a peachy hue, while the younger ones are all nice and white. I've been watching this plant all week--I took pictures on Tuesday of five trumpets, and yesterday of six. But this morning they were all open finally--although there are at least two more waiting to open, but they'll be several days yet. The best part of this is the light jasminey fragrance, which is especially strong in the evening, when you can sit on the porch and just let the aroma caress your nose. It's great.
