I dropped by the Volunteer Park Conservatory, and I’m glad I did because the Angel’s Trumpets were blooming in profusion.  Seeing so many pendulous flowers was splendid.  Their winged openings called to mind Sally Field’s flying nun headgear!

Angel’s Trumpets

July 14, 2010

My friend and colleague, Jenny, recently took some lovely sepia-colored photos of trumpet flowers.  I’ve been on the lookout for these blooms since then.  I was so happy to find Angel’s Trumpets in flower at the Volunteer Park Conservatory.  Here are my photos, inspired by Jen’s.
