Tuesday’s Flower

I believe this to be the Desert Thorn-apple (Datura discolor). I will be watching for it to open over the next couple of days. According to Wikipedia, all parts of this plant contain a mix of alkaloids that are potentially lethal when enough is ingested. Deaths from careless recreational use of Datura and related plants are frequently reported. Well, who knew?

Amazingly, we received another rain shower this morning!

Long live the desert wild flowers 💛

Wildflowers are the stuff of my heart!
