Blizzard of Flowers

Our datura plant overdid itself blooming last night.

My son counted 17 blossoms. This is one plant!

It is hard to capture the visual impact of 17 large white flowers in one place.

Because the flowers open at night, I had to take these photographs in the early morning.  We had never noticed before, but the flowers give off a lovely perfume. It was strong with this many flowers at once.

You know me, I had to go macro.

The bees like them, too.

This post is dedicated to Deb S. who supplied the seed.
