Yesterday is a cancelled check; tomorrow is
a promissory note; today is
the only cash you have---so spend it wisely. ---- Kay Lyons

Datura, a beautiful flower I have growing in my garden. Sometimes you'll hear it called Angel's Trumpet....because of it's trumpet shape and the bloom is about six inches long and 5 to 6 inches wide across the top of the bloom. It also smells "heavenly"!
It was used by the Native Americans to induce visionary dreams because of it's halucinogenic alkaloids......all parts of the plant are highly toxic. We just enjoy it's beauty!

The buds are about six inches long.
