Today's Flower #15 - Trumpet Flower

I don't know the official name of this. I just know it's a trumpet flower and it's a huge one, probably about as long as my forearm. I liked the soft white color of it and that it was nestled in the shade under some trees.

This is late...maybe he means that it's supposed to be on Sunday..but gee whiz...what difference does it possibly make? This is why I am getting soured on some memes. Too many rules and too many cranky people....Don't pay any attention to them...

I love datura, but you should know that it's highly poisonous, so should not be planted near where kids are likely to go. But such a beautiful flower!

Also the pigeons, and the fire skies, are wonderful!

We have these here and now they have a hybrid with a slight pinkish touch which is very pretty too.
