Moon Flower

My FIL calls this Moon Flower. He has a lot of this around the pine tree at the backyard. The flowers are humongous, what interesting is that, the blooms does not last through out the day It's only in the morning where you see they are open wide.
Here's some different shots for you.
She is pretty isn't it?
Thanks for dropping by folks. Have a great Sunday! Linking this to Today's Flower.

  7. Those are lovely photos of the moon flower - we have something quite similar here only its wild and we call it hedge bindweed - its probably a distant relative.

  9. These are beautiful shots. I have grown moon flowers and if you go outside when it's getting dark that's when they usually start opening and they are so beautiful against the dark night, almost like lights when you have a lot of vines of them.

  10. This is my first year growing Moon Flowers. They get their name because they open throughout the night and then close again during the day. Mine are just about to start opening, and I can hardly wait. You have some beautiful pictures. Thanks for sharing.
