Black and White Wednesday




These are Moon Flowers. - Several of you have mentioned that these resemble other plants by the name of Datura or Angel Trumpets.  Turns out they are all one and the same plant.   Just a lot of different names for them.  Apparently they are also poisonous plants.





-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
It's fun to see how different things look in Black and White compared to Color.  Hope you've enjoyed these lovely blooms.
 
 
 
Now for the colored versions:

  2. Beautiful shots. The flower looks like a datura (highly poisonous), which have the most exquisite scent in the evening. Take care xx

  3. They are both beautiful. I started showing both versions because a reader consistently asked for both versions.

  15. Ida ~ These are just beautiful! Your photography is amazing, wow, those close ups!
    I love the way flower closes up. These are the things that so glorify our great God.
    His creation is awesome in deed.
    I haven't been around for some time, so I took the time to scroll down and visit awhile. Oh I'm so glad I did! Your little Bandit is precious! I am sure he is warming your heart after the loss of your other cat. You can certainly see that he is content in a home that shows great love. :)

    I see you have a new icon photo, lovely.
    It's good to visit with you dear Ida.
    Have a beautiful day ~ Debbie

  16. I really like the comparison between the black and white and the colors. I had a moon flower one year. Such a pretty flower.

  17. there is something so pure about white blooms. i think they look like morning glories!!!

  18. Lovely photos, Ida. The plant looks like a white version of Morning Glory, which is a glorious purple and grows wild here on the Costa Brava. All the best, Bonny

  19. Perhaps they aren't poisonous, but they will send your mind on quite a trip. Tom The Backroads Traveller

  20. Not only is it fun to see your photos, I learned something new. The different names for this flower and did not know they are poisonous. :)

  21. these are gorgeous blooms! my mom used to have one like this and it only bloomed at night I think. and it just glowed in the moonlight. smelled heavenly too.

  22. LOVE the curly tips! I think they stand out perfectly in black & white!

  23. Oh my goodness Ida! I am absolutely in love with your moon flowers :) I try to grow them every year on my garden fence to no avail. Next year, I'm thinking of trying a different method of growing them in a hanging basket so the vines hang downwards instead of climbing up. Something, usually a garden critter eats my baby plants before they get a chance to grow. I love seeing your garden success with these beautiful flowers, gives me hope. Thank you for sharing!

  24. I do like the name Angel Trumpets, more fitting for them in my opinion.
    I absolutely love your black and white version. I need to try that on some of my photo's.
