no stress today…just a little quote rehash…
Meet me by moonlight alone,
And then I will tell you a tale
Must be told by the moonlight alone,
In the grove at the end of the vale!
You must promise to come, for I said
I would show the night-flowers their queen.
Nay, turn not away that sweet head,
T’ is the loveliest ever was seen.
~J. Augustus Wade
…a little poetry by the moonlight…alone, with you…
My tale my dear is for you to see
A special bloomer under the moon’s light
To give night pollinators, like moths and honeybees–
a rare glance over at the aromatic white petal,
Queen of the Night–
Blooms just ONCE on a summer night.
Hardly a plant, and sometimes known as
The Cereus cactus–
She is the loveliest and majestic queen
Ever to be seen
By moonlight alone.

Have you found, under the moon’s light, any other surprising night bloomers?
