Moonflowers

This is my moonflower vine...I grow it every year and it still fascinates me..the first time I grew it was for Bryan's daughter to help get her interested in gardening...you can literally watch the bloom open at sunset..  any child loves watching something like this...and the smell is heavenly...I have been trying for several days to get a picture to show you and I finally have a good one.. this year the vine is growing over my garden gate.and there is an asparagus bean vine intertwined too....it's a good flower to grow...oh, yes, the flower only lasts one night

Here is the bloom almost fully open...
a little wider bloom..so beautiful..and fragrant..
the LAST daylily of the year...a prolific bloomer..one of mama's babies she hybridized..
