The white angel’s trumpets are a glorious sight when they are blooming at my local botanical garden, and one can smell their heady perfume upon entering their area. These are double blooms, a flower within a flower, and I held this one up with one hand while holding my camera in my other to capture the incredible beauty of the inner bloom lit from behind by the sun. You are looking straight into the bell of the trumpet and seeing the wonderfully delicate texture of the pale petals and the usually hidden inner mysteries of the flower.
