Last Time - I Swear!

For those of you who follow me, you're probably sick to death of my moon flower pictures ... but I have one more to share.  LAST TIME - I SWEAR!

Being it was my first time growing this plant, I really didn't quite know what to expect.  I must say I was very excited with the results.  My sister gave me 4 seeds in a Christmas card.  I started them indoors and transplanted them as soon as it was warm enough up here in our Northern region.  All four flourished. 

I loved watching them grow.  The way they unfurled into huge bloosoms kept me checking them on a nightly basis.  They open at night you know, thus the name MOON FLOWER.


So there you have it, my final pictures made into a memory page.

Very cool indeed. I know some people wonder why we get so excited about our flowers ~ but they need to realize that not just everything grows by us northerners ... except BIG icicles in the winter! We have such a short growing period. Thanks for sharing ~ and I hope you saved some seeds for me to try next year.

They look quiet similar to our trumpet flowers, which usually bloom in the mornings and close-up by evening. So pretty.

4 seeds and you got them all to grow!?? Wow! I once planted a whole package of moonflowers and I did not even get one flower!

You must have a very green thumb--they are lovely.

Your welcome Cher. Like I noted once before, yours and Nina's were the only ones to germinate and you both live within miles of one another...hmmmm, maybe you have 'fairy' climate. Love the memorie page for our few blooms of summer. I have to say Girly, your's were the greatest show of the season. Love those Moonflowers.
