Datura Inoxia- Charm is deceitful

Datura Inoxia
I recently snapped this photo at our local botanical garden. I made the comment on Facebook that because of it’s great beauty and subtlety, I was sure I would see this flower someday in heaven. So I looked it up to find out it’s name and the meaning in the language of flowers. Come to find out, it is commonly called Devil’s Trumpet. It’s foliage has been used for vision quests and the like and can be deadly. The only creature that is unaffected by it’s pollen is the honey bee.
So will I see this beautiful creation in heaven one day? My opinion? Yes! But no more deceit, no more toxicity- the “sting” will be gone.
“O death where is your sting?”

“Peace begins with a smile.” Mother Teresa

In the language of flowers, Cosmos send a message of peace and tranquility.
And so, if peace does begin with a smile, may 2014 be the year that you give many smiles and that you receive many smiles.
Happy New Year- just a little late!
