Morning still allowed the Bohemian and I to admire the blossoms of the night blooming “Moonflower“, better known as Dragonfruit.
Such a rare occasion for me to witness this plant in action, my excitement has resulted in this third posting in the Archives, documenting the beauty of the “Queen of the Night”.
According to our garden friend, Mary, every one of its hair-like stamens need to be pollinated in order to bear fruit. Being that the flower opens at night and only stays in bloom for about 24 hours (at least in this case), there’s a lot of work to be done in a short time.
I don’t think I’ve ever been so close to a bee with so much pollen-laden legs.

Thanks for chronicling and sharing the progess of this flower-to-fruit. Fabulous beauty.
My pleasure to share. Glad you enjoy!
That 2nd image is dreamy!
I know…I just wanted to crawl inside there! No wonder the bees love it. Such allure.
