Cleome always makes me think of a cascading waterfall.

    So pretty! I am so envious of your flowers…..maybe someday I’ll have time for flowers again…. (heavy sigh!)

    • I planted these from seed after two years of trying to transfer several baby plants from a friend’s garden. They self-seed once planted, almost to the point of becoming invasive. The packet of seeds cost about a dollar and all I did was sprinkle them on lightly scratched dirt and wait. I didn’t water, weed or thin them and I now have dozens of beautiful, tall, reseeding plants in white, pink and deep fuchsia. Next summer I’ll probably be blogging that I have too many! Next spring try starting a packet of these along your front fence and see what happens!

    • Thanks! These are hard to photograph up close because of their long spidery “whiskers.” I always end up having to cut some of the tendrils out of the photo. I especially like macro shots of the blossoms just before they open; they look like little parasols! Thanks for dropping by! (Love your pretty Gravtar!)

    • Me too! I never tire of trying to capture them on camera, which is tricky though because they vibrate and sway with any little movement of the air! Glad you liked them!
