Peach Angel Trumpet Tree


These photographs were also taken in Spring City, Tennessee. These were almost downtown, in the quiet little area within walking distance of the business section. Have to keep in mind about the same time General Shale bought land in the area the highway next to the railroad tracks expanded to 4 lanes, with a turn lane in the middle. The town is on the other side of the tracks and there is just one caution light. Now on the highway there are 2 actual changing lights, one on each end of the town.

Had to get close, as I tend to do.


These were so beautiful and they were out at the road, just asking to be photographed. Couldn't pass them by, and the early morning light was just right. Would love to have some seeds from this one. Don't even know if these seed the same way as the other Angel Trumpets. I have two earlier post you can view here and here, which are both different from this one, and different from each other.

Ok, here we go again. I let Picasa upload 4 photographs, then added one more. Guess that is the way to do it if I want to post more than 4 photos. The first 4 I save to draft, and it goes real fast, but when I uploaded the last one it took longer than it did when I was on dialup. I now know that is because it is actually downloading the full size photograph, which does nobody any good, because it is too large to look at on your screen. I think I am going to give up for today. Maybe a light bulb will turn on and I will figure out how to size the photograph so when you click on the photo you can view a slightly larger photograph, but small enough you can still see it.
I do have some old post ready, so tomorrow you will see birds, in my old format, free of Vista complaints.

All of your photos and I especially like the last two with the delicate flowers hanging down. I have an orange trumpet in my yard but I like yours better.

Leedra: What a neat shot of the trumpet flowers, you captured them beautifully.

The angel trumpets are so delicate--like ballerinas! I just love them. I'm sure you saw my post of the trumpets from my sister's yard. I should have taken a shot of the entire bush--they get so huge! But I love these photographs! You had just the right light for their delicate coloring, and they are wonderful pictures!

I have to say, though--your shots of the angel trumpets are far better than mine!

I love angel trumpets; they are so beautiful. And what an exquisite color. I've never seen any this color before.
