I think I am a Datura but my lovely little girls that live here helped their dad by removing the 'garbage' in each container, the sticks with names. So I am unnamed....thankfully he gifted the rest out or you could be swamped. Am I a Datura?

Indeed, you are a datura :)

Is there any way you can stop it from talking to me?

If you ignore it for awhile it will give up. That doesn't work for little girls though. Many times I have tried.

Plants talking to you is no problem, it's when you answer back that you have "issues", lol.

Make sure your children and pets don't mess around with that datura because of its toxicity.

Thanks all.

I was hoping that if I found the technique to stop the plants from talking to me it might work on my 3 and 5 yr old.

Thanks Donna I didn't realize they were toxic. Fortunately it is in the raised bed so the dogs stay out and my kids are well mannered when it comes to the gardens.
