The Evening Garden

As the sun goes down the evening flowers begin to open and the garden becomes drenched in their overpowering fragrance:


Datura (this one was closing up after the sun came up, but I was still able to get a photo):

Mexican Tuberose. Their scent is strong during the day, but at night it is simply intoxicating:

Absynnian Glad. This one has a Datura-like smell, in my opinion, and the scent is very strong as night falls. Like the Tuberose, I can smell this one from the other side of the yard (40-50 feet away):

I've been wanting to plant moonflower seeds for sometime now. I fear they will climb like crazy so I am trying to find the perfect place.
