Babs came along to the workshop on Saturday
bearing gifts. Some pipes for pole wrapping, a
delicious home grown cucumber, and this.....
a dactura (Angel trumpet) grown from seed.
This made me very happy. I have tried over the
years to grow dactura without success. Today
it is very humid and I swear I could see
Jasmine winds through the wisteria on the balcony rail.
On warm evenings we eat here and the scent reminds
me of India.
A big lilly flower. Beautiful scent. The stem is
about a metre high with six flower heads.
The hover flies are loving it.
Finally, me and Mr. Ben.
Now to pack for a two day Indigo workshop with
Chichester Quilters tomorrow. It's going to be
great. Perfect weather for dipping the blues.
