Fantastic!!! How marvelous to be greeted home by a blooming garden. I'm sure you made lots of memories during this past week.
Yup... the gardens are just bursting with summer colors and textures!
I look forward to a photo of the blooming flower. I'm not familiar with that plant. Happy to hear you had a great trip.
It is also known as the "Moon Flower"... the blossom ( large, white "trumpet" shape) opens late in the day, towards evening and lasts for just that day. It is fragrant; very much like a traditional "Easter Lily." The scent fills our back patio area. at dusk.
Sounds lovey, a moment of beauty. Enjoy.
