Isn't this just the most beautiful flower?
It's an angel trumpet. I think they are absolutely beautiful... and have such a fitting name. They really do look like how I would picture the trumpet of an angel. I snapped this picture this evening. The flower just looked so pretty. There are about 8 flowers on the tree right now. By this fall, there will be dozens of them on the tree at a time - and they are breathtakingly beautiful.
I don't have much to share, so I thought I would share this picture. I did get some loose ends tied up for our trip to Ethiopia. I have our visas figured out. We are going to wait to get them until we arrive in Ethiopia. I have called and made an appointment with a doctor to discuss vaccines. Has anyone gone without any? They recommend taking a malaria Rx with us. I wouldn't mind doing that. But the CDC website recommends like six different shots - one of them alone being $175 per person. That is a LOT of cash! So, we are going to talk to the doctor and see what he recommends, but I'm hoping we can get away with much less.
We are inching closer and closer to our Sara Joy. I can't believe that soon I will be able to share her with all of you!
