Extraordinary Flower Photo

I wish I knew the name of this lovely flower that is trying to open. Breathtakingly beautiful, isn't it? I had a very nice day and hope you did too. See you tomorrow. xo

I believe this is a trumpet flower. We've got them here on the island, too. Very beautiful. They come in different colors.

By the way, the trumpet flower in your photo is opened as much as it will get. They don't open very much. :)

I am not committing but it may be an angel lily. I am going to look it up.

Lovely photo. A Brugmansia, I think. Hope you had a nice day too!

Rosemary, Lovely flower. Lovely photo. I googled " moonflower" on a hunch, and it looks like one of these. What do you think?

It's a fantastic picture. The flower is called "Datura". By the way, love your blog! sent by a dutch lady living in France!

Hi there ~ It's a Brugmansia, and also known as Datura! They are also cream coloured or light yellow.

My goodness, this flower really caught the eyes of your many readers I read all their comments and am left wondering, "what is this flower?" One thing I do know, it has been photographed beautifully as that is one fabulous photo.

definitely a "Brugmansia"..
I grow the smaller version...the Datura...
Absolutely beautiful flowers...but the seed pods are very poisonous..

Cheers!
Linda :o)
