I Heart Macro 08-26-2012

A family friend had given me several dried seed pods a few years age.  I came across them about a month ago and almost threw them away, but decided to take a chance and plant some seeds in an empty pot.  They sprouted very quickly and I couldn't believe that I had flower buds so fast.  The picture of the closed bud was taken Friday night and the majority of the pictures were taken throughout the day on Saturday and the final bloom picture was taken this morning.  The beautiful, white flowers are large and very fragrant.

I'm joining Lori Plyler of Studio Waterstone for "I Heart Macro" slash "I Heart Close Ups: Up Close Photography for Macro Makers and the Camerologically Challenged".

Enjoy your week!


  1. Very nice shots and very interesting flower - beautiful!

  2. It's a gorgeous flower and I love the way it hangs on the tree..... But it is also very dangerous; poisonous and not let little children play with the 'trumpets'.... I know a family that that happened to and they almost lost their child....that said I do love your photos and collage!

  3. I love the photos you took and the progression of that flower's bloom! You captured it all so beautifully!

  4. Beautiful pictures! I have purple ones in my garden, but your white ones look more beautiful.

  5. I didn't know you had taken all of these. Great series of shots!

  6. Love your pretty photos. I have this Moonflower plant blooming in my garden too. A friend gave me a pod of seeds but didn't tell me they are poisonous/dangerous. I had no idea. Thanks for the info~
