Favorite Foto Friday: Moonflowers

“Remember that the loveliest flower is the one that soonest fades.  Breathe its perfume quickly.” ~Andre Gide

Back in the spring the squirrels dug up the freshly-planted moonflower seeds, but they missed one!  It bloomed this week, hidden amongst a cascade of morning glory leaves.  I love this kind of surprise!  The blossom was BIG, about 4 inches across.  I tried to move it around for a better photo but made a small tear in it, so I stopped. 

Check out this cool video of a moonflower blooming…
