I am not completely satisfied with this collage I learned to make on Photoshop Elements, but my frustration level was reached, and I wanted to do other things with my evening, like visiting blotanical, reading others' blogs and catching up on the comments to the comments on my 2 blogs. Technically, this is not my 100th post if you include both blogs, but it's my 100th here, and I wanted to do something new.
My mother-in-law grew moonflowers, or datura, and for some reason they quit reseeding. When we moved here, I decided I needed to grow moonflowers in her memory. I couldn't find seeds or plants anywhere, but asked a lady at the farmer's market, and she said she knew someone she could get some from. While I was waiting, I found a couple plants from a yard sale, but I still got some from her. We've lived here 11 years, and have never had to hunt for moonflowers again. I have supplied lots of seeds and seedlings to anyone who would take them. In fact, there are probably around 100 seeds in each pod, so that makes this post especially appropriate for my 100th one. These pics are from the plant I moved to the new bed this summer.
You can see that datura flowers face up, while the lovely brugmansia flowers, mostly seen in warmer zones, face down. They are poisonous, but at one time I was told it would make you sick, but not seriously, but the information on the internet says it could be fatal if ingested, so be careful where you plant it.
