Jimson Weed

I knew about this flower only as a Georgia O'Keeffe painting but I finally saw this one in person. It really is a beautiful flower.

If this plant is where you'll see it regularly, watch for the fruit. Jimson weed is also known as the Thorn Apple. It makes this crazy, heart-shaped pod-thing covered in nasty looking sharp thorns. Worth a second photo, or at least a second look.
