Angel’s Trumpet

It was like a surprise awaiting me at the road corner. Long pink trumpet-shaped flowers hanging loosely from a tree.

Aptly named as Angel’s Trumpet, Brugmansia (Botanical name) belongs to the potato family. Native to South America , the flowers are fragrant at night (I didn’t notice any smell). Strangely these flowers are poisonous, wonder why this was planted by the roadside.
