When you choose an alternative lifestyle with no idea what you're doing and make it up as you go.
You have one of those marvellous cream-to-beige ones! – they really are STUNNING, Irene.
And I like your haiku, too! – which is saying something, as I’m fairly sick of haikus now. 😀
Thanks M.R. I have just read an internet site “keep the government out of our gardens” where apparently there is federal legislation afoot to make it illegal to have any brugmansia in the garden. Imagine the number of “today tomorrows” that would have to be pulled out. Just ridiculous. 🙂
But Irene! – you and your hubby are so IRRESPONSIBLE!!!
I haven’t noticed anyone hallucinating or dead on my front lawn yet. Better put up a warning sign or my insurance might become invalid. 🙂
LOL!! – exactly! That’s how sensible it all is. And of course the councils are all shit-scared of being sued. I suppose if your tree hung over onto the nature-strip there could be said to be a reason … But otherwise, sheer madness.
It’s a world gone mad.

Lol when I first saw the picture I thought the shape of the flowers resembled a plant we have here in the American West (ish) including SD, Dautra…it’s flowers are more often white or white pink than cream and they are known to be deadly…and also a powerful hallucinigen…(made famous or infamous in the series of “Don Juan” books by Carlos Casteneda from the ’60’s)..
Annnyway IW. I was going to ask if it had a reputation like the Datura’s based on shape of flower and lo n behold I find you’ve already mentioned it in the comments section…the proverbial oh it is to…:)
As always great post.
Thanks Dysu. If my memory serves me well this plant and the Datura were given the same name originally but both have kept the saveloys but separated the Datura and Brugmansia bit the difference being that Datura trumpets sit upright and the Brugmansias hang. The effect on you’ll be the same. Now that may all be me hallucinating facts I just dreamt up. LOL IW19
Lol that was very funny…:)
