peafowl and Brugmansias

a few years back a peahen flew in and honked at us. She ended up staying for a year, maybe two, at which time I gave her to a fellow who had a peacock but no peahen. Missed her. She once raised a Bantum chick. It was the cutest thing; little feathered golfball following the enormous peahen. She was such a good mother. anyhow, this evening I heard a loud HONK and then this peafowl flew from the ground to about 30' up in a Sycamore tree, a good 100' from take off. I had no idea they could fly that well. Hope it stays! I think its another hen.

This is ther Brugie my brother bought for me last year. It is absolutely loaded with buds and flowers which smell divine.

last June I tore out and dug up LOTS of Vinca Major and Oregon Grape. Not to mention removed the fence that was older than Yours Truly.

It is now becoming a dry garden of yuccas and aloes and such. Ahhh.

just some blooms

The Shrimp plant never stops blooming. At least not now that its fenced off from hungry deer.

plant ID needed

Does anybody know what this is? It had a marker but the Gnomes erased it and I sure don't remember the name.
