datura dreamland

i had to dedicate one whole post to the amazing datura plants i found at the botanical gardens. i have never seen such an enourmous group of them before, it was really amazing. they were slightly tricky to grow in new orleans, for me at least. anyway, they are one of my favorite blooms(actually, the double one with the purple exterior and white interior is my very fav). enjoy!

Daturas are one of my favorite flowers to grow. They plant themselves each year, and I just have to pull out or give away the seedlings each spring.

Your photos are beautiful! You should print and frame them.
