I love the combination of blue and white. But then I also love red and white. Blue and white is more calming. I think I shall always have a bit of blue and white decor in my home for tranquility.
This will be a moon flower. I just love them, blooming at night. Such a difference from all it’s sun-loving fellow flowers. Such a treat to walk outside and see the large white flower beaming at you in the darkness.
And surprise of surprises, that big bloom is still there this morning! I guess because it rained and the sun hasn’t been shining yet. What a treat!
I shall always have white in my gardens. It softens all the colors, and gives a place for the eye to rest.
To me it is gratifying to see my things all lined up in this exact soldier-like pattern. Kind of silly, I know. But it makes me feel organized and as though everything is in its rightful place.
Then all feels right with the world.
The bean pods on the hyacinth bean vine are beginning to turn brown and dry. I am gathering them in a plastic bag for next year. I love to be frugal! I bought one packet years ago, and have had many years of these beauties without paying a penny.
The sun this year is covered by the hyacinth bean vine instead of the passion vine of last year. However, I dug up a few starts of the passion vine. It is climbing, but is not mature enough to have flowers this year. Hoping for next year.
