… or lack thereof I should say, but hopefully the photos invoke a bit of romance.  This is the first moonflower of the season… it’s just too bad that they bloom at night.  The scent is divine and it would be wonderful to sit there for hours taking it all in.   The sweet william below is a bit wicked looking… so maybe this post should be titled wicked romance?!!


June 6, 2012… saw the first “hummer” at the oak leaf hydrangea.  Guess he couldn’t find any red to feast from in my almost all white and green garden!
