Moonflower Supplement

Between work demands, Bugs’s gathering strength after the rabies vaccine, and running the household, I need to make this a flying visit with you.  But I couldn’t resist showing how I jumped the gun the other day with the moonflowers.  Here’s a shot that gives you some idea of the scale these things operate on — plus more of them, in all their glory.

And here are shots of Bugs watching me from inside.

Gotta dash.  Take care everybody.  More asap.

The FELDENKRAIS METHOD is all about dreaming concretely – thinking intelligently and independently by way of a gracious and kind physicality.

    wow wee those are nice! I must get me some next spring. Bugs is a funny cute boy. Now back to those flowers, heheh I thought they only bloom at night and that they need a trellis. Your picture debunks those notions. 😉

    • nadbugs says:

      Well — they probably could benefit from a trellis. They are so enormous, they’re a bit flopped-over. And they are indeed active in the dusk-to-dawn range. I took the pic at dawn. BTW. What was that, about Bugs and moonbeams? Do I remember something along those lines?

    I do look like you dont I? But my human isnt as good at taking photos as yours. Great pics!!!

      Oh my goodness, Jimmie — are you kidding about your bean? The pics of you are FABULOUS! I love your blogsite! Dang! You got some high standards going on over there, my bud. Speaking of which, wouldn’t pictures of us together be great? We are so dapper and debonaire. “Smooth and de-BONE-er,” as my Bean and her brothers used to say. A million years ago when, long ago and far away, they fought over shared the same territory. In the early Cretaceous. Eons before I, The Bugs, was ever a gleam in my parents’ eye.

  3. Very pretty! At my former home I had a fence that was literally covered end to end and top to bottom with the moonflower’s “cousin” the morning glory. P.S. I hope Bugs is okay now — I do not like rabies vaccinations but must give them to comply with the law.

      Didn’t know morning-glories and moonflowers were related — but of course! I see it now! And I love those two names together. Moonflowers and morning-glories. Sounds like a Judy Collins song. Turning to less sweetly subjects — thank you for your concern about Bugs. I think he’s OK now. But boy do I join you in dislike. He sure wasn’t himself for a while. Doesn’t one tend to resent it when the law intrudes like that! Still — rabies is a fearsome thing. And people clearly cannot be trusted to be responsible to protect us all . . . .

    I love moonflowers, and hope to plant some next year.

    I’m glad that Bugs is willing to lie there in the window and supervise you through the screen! What would you be able to do without his input?!

  5. nadbugs says:

    Go Melanie, gardening wonder that you are. And without Bugs’s supervision, as you point out, absolutely nothing would get done of any consequence over here.
