Ready for September!


My wife Lynette made some clothes for our future grandson due in September.  I'm amazed at how small his feet will be.

























The happy couple,
my daughter Laurissa and son-in-law Ryan

Last Try to Transplant Evergreen/Weed


The plant is only about an inch tall but the roots are over 4 inches long!


I'll let you know what happens.



My Evergreen/Weed Transplant Died


Here you can see how I killed the transplant.  I must have damaged its roots.
Another seedling planted itself in a flower pot this time. 



Should I try to grow another transplant? 


Datura (Thorn Apple) Planted Itself !


This plant goes by the name Datura, Thorn Apple and others.  It planted itself in a pot meant for marigolds.  I feel very lucky.


   






















It's a very poisonous plant.
Below is a description from Wikipedia.

All parts of Datura plants contain dangerous levels of the tropane alkaloidsatropinehyoscyamine and scopolamine which are classified as deliriants, oranticholinergics. There is a high risk of fatal overdose amongst uninformed users, and many hospitalizations occur amongst recreational users who ingest the plant for its psychoactive effects.

Datura intoxication typically produces delirium (as contrasted to hallucination); hyperthermiatachycardia; bizarre behavior; and severe mydriasis with resultant painful photophobia that can last several days. Pronounced amnesia is another commonly reported effect. The onset of symptoms generally occurs approximately 30 minutes to an hour after smoking the herb. These symptoms generally last from 24 to 48 hours, but have been reported in some cases to last as long as 2 weeks.




This must be the "Thorn Apple".

It's a beautiful but deadly plant.  I think it could be named "The Angel of Death" !
