The intoxicating fragrance of the Datura flower, comforts my soul, and brings me back to my youthful roots.
Datura, or Moon flowers, ( they only open at night), are native to Utah, and have grown wild on my property all of my life.
Early evening, on a hot day its fun to watch, what I call the Bee dance. You can see as many as six, and more Bees rolling inside the same flower. This flower is just starting to open, in a couple of hours, when the Bee's go to bed, this flower will be a large white Angel's Trumpet.

    I have heard of these flowers but never seen one until now ! Absolutely gorgeous image and there is something magical about a flower that opens at night...magical like the moon and hence the name...
