The weekend has been quietly busy here at Casa P. In the midst of cat baths, crafty projects and crocheting, I keep finding excuses to go outside. Mostly to check on this datura flower.
While I am enjoying every stage of its unfurling, I am eager to experience its nocturnal perfume. The flower itself is darkly magical with its leathery outer layer and curling ends. In my anticipatory state words come to mind easily–mesmerizing, enthralling, spellbinding. All quite appropriate to a plant with such an infamous history.
I hope you are enjoying the weekend and finding time for creativity, or at least for relaxation.
