Gordon Hawkins' Brooklyn roof garden is well known in gardening website circles. He frequently posts photos of his exotic and eclectic collection of brugmansias, passifloras, clerodendrons, and more. The source of many brugmansia collections has been his generous free cuttings in late fall each year. Gordon also freely shares his clever directions for building planters and patio furniture from foam insulation boards.

|Didn't you come to Galveston for the IPC in 2006? We met briefly then, I believe.
I had no idea your roof garden was so extensive, it is a marvel!!

|Hetty... yes... I was there for that gathhering and I do remember meeting you then... I remember also your self introductiion to the plumeria group when you first came on to talk about plumerias.. and we wrote back then... gald to see your interest is still alive..
well we got a snow storm the other day... biggest since ... well forever for so early/big and there I was not believeing it was going to snow.. and left things out... as my plumeria had a lovely inflo going... on a plant I grew from seed I gathered off some seaside plumeria in Panama.. it still looks amazingly well for having gone through a day in the snow...as the air temperatures were warmer than freezing... but we'll know if I'm to get flowering on that when it's spent a few days warm inside..
thanks for the complement...
Keep gardening the plumerias...
