It is early Saturday morning, and I sit here listening to the birds singing, see the sun shining, and think to myself today is the day. Then I look out the window, see the frost on the windshields of the vehicles on the street and know it is not. It almost seems as if the weather just does not want to co operate with us gardeners here in Saskatchewan. We will have beautiful temperatures and sunny skies for a couple of days........then the temperature plummets and we get rain, hail, or snow. My poor plants are stuck in the house for awhile yet.
These pictures are of some Moonflower seeds I planted. Out of the eight seeds I planted I managed to get 4 to grow. In case anyone doesn't know Moonflowers are actually part of the Morning Glory family....except unlike Morning Glories these open at night. The flower is white and can be 6 inches in diameter. The first time I was given a plant by a friend I fell in love with them. I put plants on the deck and in the evening when I am enjoying the quiet, watching the stars or the moon, I can gaze also on the bright white flowers of this plant. They seem to reflect the light of the moon and sort of shimmer. This time I have enough to do a couple of large pots, one for the deck and one for the patio below.
Well off to visit you all now. Hope there is coffee on! Everybody have a wonderful day. God bless.
