I've had these plants for years. They propagate like crazy. So many that I pull several seedlings up. I love them though. They must have a few varieties because some pictures online look a little different. Check this video out. It's blooming in real time! Moonflower
I'll have to go watch mine tonight!

Honeybee Stole

Coming along on my Honeybee Stole by Anne Hanson too. Her patterns are so exquisite. The yarn: Knitpicks Bare in fingering weight, wool/silk and it's wonderful!

More Starmore!

Making some progress on my Roscalie Vest. Finished the first repeat of 54 rows. The fabric is really taking on the color and designs now. I steam blocked it to make sure the stranding wasn't too tight or loose.
I'm happy with it!

After the Rain....

There's something about butterflies that cheer you! A few of these were fluttering around my butterfly bush after the thunderstorm today. Not a bad shot for a low-end digital! Now if I had a really nice camera with an awesome zoom lens well...............

Summer Flowers

Roadside Lilly's, you've got to keep them tame for the yard or they will take over.

Rose of Sharon, beautiful I think. I've got a pink one too. They are also prolific but I just pull up the seedlings or transplant them.
