Conservatory - Datura Tree

I can't wait to show you, what I made during the last days. I love Datura trees. but with cats, it's to dangerous, because they're poisonous. In miniatures it's no problem:) Nearly all leaves are handcut and all the flowers are handcut and painted.
Have a wonderful day

    1. Thank you so much! That's the best compliment I can get.:)))
      By the way - to cut the blossoms isn't so much work, but the folding is a pain in the ... fingers.

    1. Not only to kitties!
      Witches used datura for their flying ointments (with other plants), because the poisonous alkaloids make severe hallucinations. So they thought they' be flying.
      All parts of Datura are poisonous - most of all the roots and seeds. So you see - no plant for pets:)
