Sometimes at night flowers take on a different 'Look' and then there are flowers that only bloom at night..

Like the Moon flower Vine

Awesome shots, Cinta.
I want a moon garden. So many white blooms have the most wonderful scent at night. I have the spot picked out for it, just have to get water to it.

WOW!clap Stunning photos!
I love to spend evenings out in the garden,
thanks for letting me visit yours. grin

You all have such beautiful plants,
here are a few more from N. Carolina:

Hedychium coronarium, Butterfly Ginger
[Linked Image]

Dichorisandra thrysiflora, so called "Blue Ginger"
[Linked Image]

An Amaryllis, taken back in the spring,
[Linked Image]

And one of my very favorite night-blooming flowers,
Epiphyllum oxypetalum, "Queen of the Night" -
I thought this pic was cool because it turned out to have
a sort of an under-the-sea look about it.

Those are awesome shots. Great job Zuzu. My butterfly ginger haven't bloomed this year. It was just too dry here in Cal. They are still alive to bloom another year though.

thanks on the pictures, having fun with this night time shooting clap

the mini bells is a very small petunia. You don't have to dead head it or anything. I love it. I think its called million bells at some places.
