Datura from the wild now blooming in my front yard. On a visit to a wildlife sanctuary famed for its rhinos, the guards had given me a seedpod of this plant. There were several plants growing wild but the one behind their living quarters had white blooms with a tinge of purple. That was in February. Now the seeds are rewarding me with these blooms.
There are so many synonyms for this plant. The most common are–the Thorn Apple, Stinkweed, Jimson’s weed and Devil’s Trumpet. Although the plant is poisonous it has many medicinal properties. In the evenings there’s a subtle fragrance from the blooms.
