As night falls...

The nicotiana is starting to bloom in the fragrant bed.

Datura is budding in several places around the yard. This plant is a self sown volunteer.

Orlaya grandiflora glows. These seeds came in a trade. I didn't know much about them. I sowed them. They germinated. It's blooming. I'm happy.

Have you ever seen variegated pokeweed?

It's 84 degrees. The yard is mowed. The breaker for the microwave was installed with only 3 calls made to Robert. Or maybe it was 4. I still have laundry to do and dinner to eat. There will be more rain Friday and Saturday.

Tom - Everything is looking so lush and healthy. I love the whites and your fragrant bed. The growth in one year is just amazing.

Are you taking a photo a week this year?

Nicotiana is blooming here, too. A white and a light purple.

We need rain badly. I will have to water, water, water tomorrow.

Gardenias grow pretty fast.

I've tried nicotiana before and had no success. It looks like it's growing just great there for you. I think I have more datura seeds and need to get them out and plant them. They are wonderful! I had white and the purple double.

Enjoy evenings in your gardens.
