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!

Beautiful photo's! I love Moon Flower, I didn't get many last year but I'm hoping this year I will. And I hope you'll share more of your garden too :-) I'm so excited for Autumn I'm practically beside myself lol! That pattern is beautiful btw.

Such a lovely flower. And great pictures.
I love With Thy Needle designs very much, and this one is no exception. The four pinkeeps look fantastic and I have put this on my wish list, too.

I'm not familiar with moonflowers but I sure did enjoy looking at yours! I am also unfamiliar with 'I love with my needle' designs so guess where I'm going to next....?

Very pretty, did they survive the hurricane?

Thanks for sharing. I am intriqued by Moon Flowers but never planted any. Love the pinkeeps.

Moon flowers are lovely, aren't they? My parents had a moon flower creeper in their back garden. Watching the flowers open was always a favourite thing to do in the summer.
