Such a Marvelous Scent!

Too bad blogs don't come with Smell-o-Vision. All it took was a couple of warm days and a good soak of the roots, and my Brug is flowering, and filling the greenhouse with scent.

  1. Now is the time I wish I had taken cuttings and had at least one in the greenhouse. I don't know where it would have fit. Dead stalks stand outside with no sign of life. Surely at least one, if not all will put up little shoots from soon now that the weather is warm. I think June is when we'll hope to see first blooms.

    Meanwhile, yours are beautiful. Love the two little pots, one bigger pot display along the ledge in your greenhouse.

  5. I didn't notice a scent last summer...might have been less outdoors. All that beauty and they smell good too?

  6. Beautiful! I wonder if I could convince my husband to build me at greenhouse just for my Brugmansia? It's a year old but has never shown any sign of blooming. Perhaps I've been too stingy with the water. It's in a pot so maybe I'd have better luck planting it in the ground here.

  7. Swoon! Love that fragrance! Still green here - the brugmansia leaves and my envy!

  8. I used to have one so I can imagine the wonderful perfume in your greenhouse, I'd be making excuses to find work to do in there, just so that I could smell it!

  9. My attempt at overwintering mine in the garage failed miserably. My mom put hers, that I bought at the same time as mine, in the garage and it's alive. She asked me a couple days ago if I had watered it.

Gardening is a solitary activity. But blogging about it is a social phenomenon! I don't make money from my blog by advertising, or use it to drive customers to a business. If you liked my post, or my writing or photography, or even just one picture or turn of phrase, I'd love to hear from you. That's how I get paid.
