Hi Jim, 
Yours is not a simple pleasure, in a planet like this...:-)  
Thanks a lot for your message!!, I enjoyed your walk too. This is perhaps what we expect from our "hobby": a recovered Eden raised by ourselves...

It's about 10 P.M. here, and I just came in from the garden, a garden about
to be flooded with light from the full moon. The moon has to clear the trees
before it lights the garden. Several big clumps of Hymenocallis of the
Ismene group are in full bloom and filling the garden with intense
fragrance. These flowers are really beautiful in the light of the moon,
especially Sulphur Queen. What a treat!

In a friend's garden, Gladiolus callianthus (our old pal Acidanthera) is
also in bloom and fragrant: another great moon flower!
