August 27, 2013 sigWednesday, August 27, 2014 – My datura has been doing well this year and so have my garlic chives.  Datura has a wonderful and intoxicating perfume that it releases as it opens in the evening to attract night flying pollinators.  The blossoms have been setting seed pods, so it looks like some night flyers are finding it, though I’m also seeing honeybees in the early morning.
8:27:14 with leaves sig 8:27:14 datura sig 8:27:14 open sig 8:27:14 honeybee sig “A human being is a part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feeling as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.”
~ Albert Einstein
