Nighty-night

Imagine my surprise when I was watering last night and found this little lovely night bloom coming open on my Datura.

It's especially nice, because we are hosting Supper Underground here in our back yard on Saturday night with about 30 people coming for dinner. Our guests for the evening will be able to enjoy the pretty white blooms and their sweet fragrance. Thanks, guys!
While I love the Purple coneflower, I'm always intrigued by the white -- here you see the first of three that have returned from last year.
Isn't the light pretty on these Wisteria seed pods? Wonder if I would have any luck planting some...have you ever tried?
