Brazilian beauty

DAY 211 (2 NOVEMBER) – Angel’s trumpet (Brugmansia suaveolens) (Cádiz)

Couldn’t resist these striking flowers in Cadiz’s beautiful and grand Parque Genovés. Apparently they are usually white, so I was so lucky to see these peach-coloured versions. Didn’t surprise me at all that they are native to the coastal rain forests of Brazil and most commonly found in central and south America. This part of Cádiz is so reminiscent of Havana, with its faded grandeur, cobbled streets and magnificent promenades by the sea.

They are also highly poisonous, belonging to the nightshade family.
