Golden Trumpets

Monday, January 24, 2011
Even the bees are enjoying the beauty of these Angel's Trumpets at the Los Angeles Arboretum.  The Sunset demonstration garden has huge trees of this unique flower that hangs upside down.  One of the beauties of this relative of the "Jimson Weed" is that only at night, when the temperatures cool down, do you smell its wonderful fragrance.  So if you plant one,  put it by a window near the bedroom so you can enjoy it.
