Braving The Elements


Our winters are so unpredictable here in New Orleans that our plants really don't know what to do but do the best they can. LOL

Anyway, this little baby is 'Braving The Elements' in her pot, showing one bloom at this time.

Thanks SwampLady, I don't think she would make it thru your snow tho.

bali, we were and still are reigning superbowl champions until the end of the upcoming playoffs. We lost yesterday so Saints won't be in playoffs.

Braving The Elements
Saw this today.

Haight Ashbury bud/bloom. Don't know if she will fully open. We are having wind and cold today and continuing on for a few more days.

Thanks bali.

This WAS braving the elements as of yesterday morning.

'Cotton Candy' brugmansia

I'm not sure if the buds will bloom or not as we had temps down to 28 degrees last night and expected temps of 27 degrees tonight. It is covered with frost blankets. We'll see. I'll keep yall posted.

When I pulled the covers off today, here is what I saw.

I don't know if they bloomed 'under the tent' as bali would say, or not. We will be getting a little warmer weather for the upcoming week so we will see what they will do. I'll keep you posted.

They look as if they have not bloomed yet. This is only the first step of it blooming.

funny bali! That would have meant taking the clothespins off to see.

Hi mary, thanks for your input. I'm afraid there may not be any more hope for these two. They look the same as yesterday and the day before. I really think the cold got to them.
