OT- BLOOMS!!!
 
This is my "Moonflower" bush in full bloom so far....Datura, otherwise known as "Devil's Trumpet". Starts blooming in the late evening, blooms continue until morning and the temperatures go up, then does it all over again......light fragrance attracts large Lunar Moths.

Ooh, pretty! But isn't the Datura flower incredibly toxic? (It can kill humans and animals who ingest it.) It's also an insane hallucinogen that causes delirium.

Yes, it is but neither my animals nor I have any intention of munching on them and don't plan on drinking any datura tea either!
