This plant is so pretty, but yet so toxic! All of the plant is dangerous if ingested, right down to the seed. It is Datura, also known as Angel Trumpet or Devil Trumpet.

This is just one of many Angel Trumpets blooming in my garden. The flower will only last one day and then forms a large seed pod.
This huge 'Datura Metel Triple Yellow' is poisonous to humans and animals. The tobacco hornworm is immune to it's toxic properties.
There was a hard shower during the night. And now, the sun is up but not out. No matter, Mr. Datura metel 'Triple Yellow', though still sporting a few rain drops, radiates his own bit of sunshine.
