Moonflowers 2

on January 28, 2012

I can’t believe it! When I wasn’t able to get a picture of the moonflowers yesterday, I was frustrated but I didn’t panic because last January the blooming went on for a few days. In previous years they’ve only flowered on a single day. Well, it looks like this is one of those years, so I have missed out on my prize-winning photograph!

Oh well. Here’s what they look like once the sun gets to them. You’ll have to wait for next January to see what they look like in all their glory. In the meantime, all you have to do is use your imagination and ‘see’ them the way they are when the moon kisses them.

    Moonflowers, eh. Thank you for putting up the photograph and allowing me to remember what they were.
    I have, outside my window, a beautiful bush called nightsestrum which, when in season, gives off the most glorious scent…but only at night.
    Dad could never come to grips with that particular phenomena. He would always call out to Jeni: “Are you spraying something?”
    He’s gone now, of course, and for better or worse, I am reminded of him when ever I smell those flowers.

    I know these flowers! My dad used to have a giant one in a pot in our back yard in California. There are many varieties of this type of cacti. Do yours have a heavenly scent too? ~ Lynda
