Eric in front of his brugmansias

Aren't they gorgeous? They're growing like crazy this year. Brugmansia, also known as Angel's Trumpets, have amazing flowers and this intoxicatingly delicious smell. Anthropologie actually has an Angel's Trumpet perfume right now, designed by Ineke Ruhland, who seems like a totally amazing perfumer.
Brugmansias are tropical though, so we have to move them back in during the winter - then they live in our plant room/sun room. They've grown so much, I don't know if there will be enough room for them all this year! The cat's box is in there too - I think she's going to love it when they're back in. But we won't have to move them until late September/early October. Our first frost around here is usually October 10-15th.
