At Dusk

IMG_8772

Tonight was the first beautiful evening we have had in months it seems.  It started with a nice rain, not enough, but some is better than none!  Then it went from 95 degrees to 75 degrees… DELIGHTFUL!!  Tomorrow the high is supposed to be 75 and I can’t wait… could fall be here?

The moonflower takes on a glow at night and the scent is heavenly… the rain made them even more beautiful.  There were nine blooms tonight… it must have really liked the rain!

  1. The water droplets look so cool in these photos! Nice job :)

  2. Fantastic shots! :-)

  3. That is so pretty. Love the little raindrops and the yellow green center. We are supposed to get a cooler day on Monday…I’m planning a gardening day!

  4. Thanks for stopping by my blog. ;) To answer your question, wild red raspberry leaves are often used as a medicinal herb as a tonic for the female reproductive system. It has a pleasant flavor though, somewhat similar to that of a mild black tea. I use in in a blend with mints, clover blossoms and alfafa for both the medicinal benefits and the taste.

  5. Absolutely LOVE the first one! Pure perfection :-)
    Supposed to get cooler here, too, but still going to be in the 90’s. At least the lows are supposed to be in the 70’s (although I won’t actually believe it until I see it!)

  6. Just stunning. It was in the 60’s & 70’s here yesterday too. Almost seemed chilly after high 90’s! Enjoy the coolness.
    p.s. Sorry to send you hunting thru my posts about my camera equipment. I should post that somewhere but haven’t had many people ask. I use an older digital camera ~ Canon 20D ~ most of the time with a macro lens. hth

  7. GORGEOUS first image! The subtle lighting is so fitting for the moon flower.

  8. Not a Tamron ~ the Canon 100mm macro lens. It has been worth every penny!

  9. I really love that first shot.

  10. These shots make me feel cool! Just lovely.
