Some views of the tropical border
I decided to get out and take a few pics of the tropical border before this string of 95 degree days fries all the flowers off the Charles Grimaldi Brugmansia. The banana spike was a false alarm, thank heavens, and was just a tightly furled leaf that didnt' want to unfurl. The end of that leaf is all twisted up. When it finally started growing it put on about two feet in a day.
'Charles Grimaldi' is really starting to throw some buds and will be smothered with flowers if this heat wave breaks soon.
