Datura - and more
D. grew these datura from seed and we planted them out this year. He has nursed them like babies and built a mesh frame to protect them from the Levante. Here are the results. Angels' trumpets is the common name and we understand that the hanging-down variety are called brugmansia. If I've got this wrong, some of my blogging buddies will let me know.
The pomelos are coming along - they are the pink variety and D loves the juice, squeezed fresh every morning. There are many many more this year than before. (whoops....the picture has disappeared: maybe it'll reappear when posting).
We have lovingly cared for these, thinking they were part of the hibiscus bed, but we were told last week that they are abutilon. I remember these - a peachy variety like a Chinese lantern - from my Cornish garden. We'll be taking many cuttings of this to spread around the garden.
