While attending a Marriage Seminar dealing with communication, Tom and
his wife Grace listened to the instructor, "It is essential that
husbands and wives know the things that are important to each other."
He addressed the man, "Can you describe your wife's favorite flower?"
Tom leaned over, touched his wife's arm gently and whispered, "It's self-rising, isn't it?"
The rest of the story gets rather ugly, so I'll stop right here.
I took these photos and a few days later, every single bud and flower disappeared. only the leaves and stems are left and we have no idea what happened. That was on Wed of last week, and on Thursday every single one of the buds on the Double Purple Trumpet are gone. Shades of Twilight Zone....
