Enchanting | RedGage
This is a moonflower that I grew this year. I was excited about it because (like year-except I forgot) I was afraid they were not going to bloom. But they wait for September for me anyway. A moonflower is a very unique beautiful flower that not only smells enchanting, but is magical to see. It only blooms one time, one night and than its life is over. So for a short few hours, the world is blessed with their existence and there beauty until sunrise.
This photo is a moonflower at the end of its life cycle. The closer they get to dying, the more their scent goes away.
