Datura
Datura, like me, is nocturnal. Last night the blooms on my Datura started opening. The scent that was in the air was overwhelming. The blooms only have this scent at night. In the morning don't try to sniff it or you will be more than disappointed. It's on the verge of peeeyyyyeeeew. Much like me in the morning!

Datura is a favorite of mine, and seems to be the perfect match for those sultry Southern nights. Each year I say I'm going to plant datura and brugmansia together in the same giant pot, and never get around to it.....perhaps next year....

The datura does sound wonderful, but I want to comment on how beautifully your corner garden is arranged. I could imagine sitting in that spot for hours.
