After a hot day in Santa Rosa, Mama and I decided to cool down in our garden this evening. As I began our nighttime watering, I noticed our first blossom had appeared on our Angel’s Trumpet tree. I waited for Mama to notice, camera poised, and I wasn’t disappointed. She was so overcome with joy to see this bloom in our own backyard that she began to cry happy tears and sat down in her rocker for a closer look.
Mama has loved these pendulous flowers for many years. After much persistence, we recently tracked one down for our own garden (though I haven’t had a chance to plant it yet). These bell-like flowers, also called Brugmansia, come in many different colors and can be a shrub or a tree.
Today’s #OneGoodThing was Mama’s beautiful reaction to our first Angel’s Trumpet flower.
