Artistic License

In my library of photos, I found this photo of a Jimson Weed bloom that I’ve been keeping for some time.  Many of my fellow bloggers have posted photos and stories about this plant before.  It is a highly toxic plant that is one of a group of plants known as the “belladonnas”.  It is known to have hallucinogenic properties and with that in mind, I decided to alter the state of my photo just as this weed might alter the state of one’s mind.  So, here you have my hallucinogenic version of a Jimson Weed blossom.

With your creative portrayal of the hallucinogenic properties of this plant, you have spared the rest of us from the temptation of experimentation.
