Pattie Garden Magic

 


Pretty sure this plant is a member of the jimson weed family.

The plant is about 4 feet tall already. I love the huge trumpet blooms....

this may be a Brugmansia instead of a datura. they do come in the color pink which daturas do not. also datura trumpets point up instead of down. they are a related plant. check the google images and see if they don't match

I hope you haven't been nibbling on it, just out of curiosity.

Gorgeous Pattie. Can't believe it would even have the title "weed" in the name.

I need to study up on plants and flowers. That would be an intersting new hobbie for me.

As always, thank you for sharing lovely pictures from the park-like gardens of your yard.
