Beauties of the Night.....and Some of the Day
I have been noticing my neighbor's Moonflower every morning when I walk the dogs. All the blooms are spent and drooping. I decided to walk down the street tonight after dusk to see if there were any blooms open. Lo and behold….there were multiple blooms!
The Black and Blue Salvia is also a new addition from last fall. It took so long to look like it was going to bloom and now it is getting the attention it deserves. Next to the B & B is one of the many Blackberry Lilies , Belamcanda chinensis, and it is in its berry mode. This garden borders my neighbor's yard. They were most curious as to the type of berry I was growing and wondering if it was edible! I told them I wouldn't try it.
