Brugmansia Blooms

Our Angel’s Trumpets are finally blooming, noticed first blooms a couple days ago. They are blooming later than normal, possibly because of the unusually cold winter past.

The woolly worms have invaded and are having a nice meal off the toxic leaves; we spent much of yesterday removing damaged leaves and picking off the wooly little pests, which range in color from orange to black.

Have to do more research to see what appropriate action is next. If anyone has knowledge of or can identify this little fuzzy in the photo, please let me know, it will speed things up for me!

Volunteer in the Flowerbed

The volunteer that I talked about in an earlier post turns out to be a cantaloupe; we have four growing melons on the vine now, as it continues to expand in my flowerbed. Guess it will be a tasty treat, but the dahlia does not like being used as a support.

Anyone else having a good experience with a volunteer in the garden?
