Flower - Was only one flower open. It have a long tube. Another flower has grown the tube but not opened yet. The plant had more small buds.

A picture of where we found the plant. Perhaps a little difficult to see but the plant is in the middle of the picture, in the bottom. The little white dot is the open flower.

I think it is Nicotiana repanda Willd. ex Lehm., but I'm not sure. http://www.wildflower.org/gallery/species.php?id_plant=NIRE
Will be nice if somebody can confirm the ID or maybe have another possibility for ID and we can add the pictures on Database.

(Anyone can add my photos, posted in the forum, to database if they are not yet added. I'm sorry, sometimes I just put them in the forum waiting for confirmation ID and the photos remain so.)

Thanks Josephine. I did not feel the scented, but it was morning (8AM) and a pretty windy morning day.
