Angel Trumpets

We were leaving the garden and I spotted these Angel Trumpets on the way out. I had to turn around and drive back to get a shot or two. So gorgeous. I hope you enjoy. Thank you for stopping by!

    • I would love the opportunity to smell them sometime. When I took these I did not notice a scent coming from them.

      • Yes; like many jasmines, the aroma of the datura doesn’t cast its intoxicating spell until the end of the day. reminiscent of the subtle fragrance of the magnolia, it’s quite special, especially under a full moon, and the flowers seem to glow!. i have two cuttings trying to take hold in my garden here in Ecuador. It will be great to have that old friend in my neighborhood!
        The plant has a dark side and has been used for its hallucinogenic effects and to drug others. It is very dangerous; look up ‘jimson weed, a cousin of the lovely angels trumpet, for some interesting trivia about the plant.
