Garden things that light up the night...

The ever-so slightly cooler night air draws me outside in the evening, looking around the garden and wishing for more light and more time to spend.

Tonight, the bright flowers of the night shone under the moon and beckoned me.



As did the actual lights hanging about the birds' favorite gurgling fountain.

No matter how or when you look at it, the garden is a magical place, isn't it?

I love starry night gardens. So many fragrant flowers, light in color, almost have a glow as the sun sets. Nice pics.

Evenings in the garden are nice. Cooler air, and we always have the 'floor show' of the deer coming through. The Cardinals like dusk at the feeders, too.

Hopefully, the evening air will get cooler soon. It's time.

I love this! You've got some great selections (and super pictures) for plants that light up the night. Thanks for taking the stroll!

And I'm glad you succumbed at BSN. Am about to do the same myself.
