The moon vines began blooming this evening. If you aren't familiar with this plant, it is in the morning glory family (but doesn't self-sow) and at twilight, the blooms open right before your eyes!
I had forgotten how intoxicating the scent of the flower is; the perfume is used to lure night bugs and moths to pollinate the flower.

Here's our last bouquet of glads for the year. It makes me sad because the last bouquet signals that summer's end is near. Despite the heat, I love puttering in the garden with the dogs.
So stay cool and enjoy the last of the dogs days of summer!
