First Moonflower, Finally!

My moonflower just bloomed for the first time this year. This afternoon, the flower bulb was rolled up tight. Four hours later, it was in full display.

**Edited to add: I should probably explain my excitement about the first bloom. The main thing about Moonflowers is that they only bloom for one day, or evening. Then they close up and die. Many flowers blooms last several days, but not the lovely, mysterious Moonflower. She is showy. She is explosive. And, poof! She's gone.

Mine never bloomed this year, altho my morning glories did!
