 The datura plant has spawned these weird seed pods.  Don't they look like something from outer space? I read up on them and found that this plant can cause delirious states and even death.  It was a well known essential ingredient in love potions and witches' brew.  Boiling the seeds into a tea can cause hallucinations and even death.  Will be careful not to do that!  
My gorgeous morning glories.  You cannot believe how brilliant (almost a neon blue) some of these are.  There's a new type with a fern-like leaf that have tiny hot pinkish red flowers on them. They're a cypress vine.  I hope I can collect seeds from them this year.  They are all so beautiful to look at from the house.
