    A distinctive floral unfurling- Datura innoxia.
    Very pretty, very toxic. Don’t eat it.

    ah yes Datura the local school bus company had them growing around the bus yard …part of me wanted to tell them that they were too toxic be around the kids that were being dropped off …another part of me wanted to just admire the plants ..pure white 5 inch trumpets
