Do you like moon flowers?

Do you like moonflowers? I just love them. I’ve grown 2 kinds, one is like a bush, got some seedlings from Aunt Verna and Uncle Ed up in Tuscola, Illinois, years ago and have been messing with them ever since, I just love how the flowers open and close – they’re kinda like pinwheels. And you can see how big they are by that bee!

And then there is the moonflower vine. I bought seeds one year thinking they were the moonflowers like I got from Uncle Ed and Aunt Verna, but they turned out to be a vine that grew all the way up to the second floor deck and beyond! I think they’d have covered the roof if I had let them have their way! Heart shaped leaves bigger than dinner plates! It’s amazing what a little miracle grow will do.

And finally, here’s a little moon flower arrangement I made using a flower frog, it didn’t last long, but it was beautiful and did I mention how fragrant the moon flowers are at night?
