Fruit and flowers of Thorn Apple
Many Thorn Apple (Datura stramonium) plants have appeared this year on disturbed ground in the Forêt des Écrivains-Combattants. This robust, annual plant is highly poisonous being a member of the Solanaceae which includes the Nightshades, Mandrake and Henbane along with the Tomato and Potato! (Panasonic Lumix TZ10)
