Finally, moonflowers

Moonflower at 9:30 pm I've always wanted a moongarden. Only white flowers that open at night, maybe in a crescent shaped spot in the yard. This year we got a bit closer by planting 5 moonflower seeds. We kept them inside until May, and then put them into a container with a 6-foot trellis that John built, complete with a copper crescent moon at the top. It became part of our daily routine to check their progress, and over the past three months they have climbed to the top and swirled around a few times. Tonight, in the rain, we have our first bloom..
