Daisies at night

Daisies at night look like masses of shining beacons. That last picture was with no flash, just light from the house. There are strange depths to the garden at night and different sounds. That second picture is some wooden painted thing I found in a junk store. Teapot with cups, on acid? I hung it on the fence.
I planted many white flowers for the night. And a lot of pastels, which show up good by moonlight. I think you should garden for yourself. Impressing anyone else is pitiful incentive. Chances are no one is going to care or do it for you, you might as well plant what you enjoy. Same with decorating for holidays. People have asked me why I do it when I live such a solitary life. I do it for me.
