Evening Perfume

Whilst I could never claim to be green fingered or even vaguely knowledgable. Exotic flowers are so bewitching, one does not need to be a gardener to appreciate their beauty or scent. What has caught my interest recently is the concept of flowers that only bloom once night fall. Such a seductive concept, by day just a tightly folded bud, when the sunsets; they come alive. Revealing their charms and secrets, enjoying the night time sounds. Then the sun rises and she retreats into herself and the cycle starts anew. I must point out that these are only a selection of my preferred choices, there are others but I thought they were not as beguiling. Hopefully some of you may enjoy these blooms in your own gardens either today or tomorrow.

  1. Gorgeous! XO I am an avid gardener when I have the land. All I can claim to, right now, is an Orchid which loves where it is sitting and the same with an African Violet. 🙂
