My first moonflower bloomed yesterday! Yay! Unfortunately, I didn't get to see it open. Sad I had to go out between 4 and 6 pm yesterday. When I got back about 5:30 it was open in all its glory. I've got other buds showing. Just have to be patient and try to time it right.

Congrats!!! Mine have been blooming now for about a month or so and I just love them. I gave my 85 year old father a pack of moon flower seeds and he calls me every night to see how many blooms I have open. So far he has had more blooms than me!!! And they smell wonderful! Thumbs up

Looks great! I never got around to any this year, sure do miss them Crying
It happens in a flash, but the memory of it last forever. It can not be borrowed or stolen, and it is of no earthly good until it is given away. So if in your hurry you meet someone who is too weary to smile, leave him one of yours, for no one needs a smile quite as much as he who has none to give...
