Moon Flower

Few things make me excited about the garden this time of year. It feels like it's been taken over by weeds. Everything has already bloomed at least once. I've had my fill of BLT's and the preserving is making me hot and tired. But this - this gets me excited!

It seems to take forever for the moon flowers to open, but once they do, all the waiting is totally worthwhile! The faintly pearlescent hand-sized blossoms with an incredible sweet scent open at night and only last a day. I wish my bedroom window was on the sunny side of the house so I could grow these by my window and drift off to the lovely sweet smell every night in September.

I wish you had smell-o-vision ....
