Beautiful datura bloom

Good morning everyone.
It looks like it's going to be a gorgeous day here,
so I hope to get out to play in my gardens.

Today's posting is about a lovely plant.

It is highly poisonous if ingested though,
so please don't do that.

I have grown three different ones, white, yellow and double purple.
Each one is beautiful, they are all scented.
It is fun to watch them unfurl, but it does take a little time.
The seed pods look like something from a science fiction movie.

Here are some websites with some very interesting information.

Below are a sequence of pictures that I took.
These are all of the same blossom, just taken
at different times of the day/evening.
