  4. Love the little bugs on the flowers. And the angel trumpet. I have a yellow one here at the city house. Have tried several times unsuccessfully to take a cutting for the country house. And I'm surprised you still have baby birds this late in the year.

  7. Love that white flower. Ellen Abbott called it an "angel trumpet," that that is a good name for it.

  8. We need more people like smurf. There's not much native habitat left and what is there is fragmented.
