I’m Being Followed by a Moonflower…

Standard

I love that this vine shows me about five delightful and fragrant flowers a night (and a bit in the light) for the past few weeks. All of this beauty from about 3-4 seeds planted right near the evergreen tree.

First you see this, which in a certain way resembles a vanilla swirl ice cream cone:

Image

They bloom all evening, miniature moons in the dark

Image

And then they are gone the next day

Image

Image

The next evening, they will be back, but only until the frost of autumn comes

Image

I ❤ the leaves also, for obvious reasons

Image

I like blue flowers like this salvia, but that’s a different post
