Here's a little photo story of it's growth and bloom over a one week period. I took a photo each evening, then waited a couple of days for the full explosion of colour.
There are 9 trumpet flowers between the two stalks. Incredible. All I had to do was add water!
I hope to join you here more regularly soon. I'm finishing up my first project of 2012 (for ME!) but before it is for me, it is for someone else to share with you. If you know what I mean. I've also got a few fabulous Christmas gifts to show you. My SIL went to town and spoiled me rotten. She even stitched into the wee hours of a few pre-Christmas nights to make me a remarkable hoop. Just wait till you see!
