Want to see some Moonflowers?

Would you like to see a beautiful Moonflower from my garden?  I tried these for the first time this year and so far, I'm enchanted with them!  What a great reason to go out into the warm summer night - to sit and admire these lovely things that appear as the sun goes down.

First, they become these gorgeous swirly pods.

Then the pod starts to slowly open (this is looking down the vine from my upper deck)

Then, it opens a bit more.

Then you are rewarded with the most magnificent, large, beauty of a flower!  I can't tell you how much I'm enjoying these.

Have you seen this wonderful new design?  I'm not much on finishing, but something about this just appeals to me.  Gee, it couldn't be because it's Halloween now, could it?  It's from With Thy Needle and it's a must have for me.

I hope everyone is working on great things and looking forward to Autumn.  It really will be here before we know it and I'm looking forward to this one more than I have in a long time!  Some difficult family business is out of the way and we are looking ahead and not behind!  Love and peace to you all!
