We walked for four days in the Tayrona National Park on the Caribbean coast in Colombia. It was teaming with flowers and as usual I took hundreds of plant photos. I have put a few of them here.
Now the Angels Trumpet is sometimes used in the towns to rob unwary tourists. Our guide told us a tale of when one member of his tour group, from Holland, secretly made a tea from the plant. His halucinations were so bad they had to tie him to his bed for twelve hours and he nearly died.
I took pictures of so many plants, as usual, so I have just added a gallery below. Some of them will be familiar to people in the UK as small pot plants.
