This morning is I heart Macro over at Studio Waterstone, won't you join us?
These are the buds of my tuberose plant. The perfume I wear is velvet tuberose so I thought it might be fun to grow a few this year. It is said that Cleopatra wore tuberose.
I planted the bulbs in pots on my steps so that when they bloomed I could enjoy their fragrance each ime I walked by.
This bud had been growing and expanding for 2 weeks now. I just hope it blooms before a strong wind in the upcoming thunderstorms snap it off before I get to enjoy it!
Most of the flowers have succumbed to the extreme heat we have had over the past few weeks/month but the phlox still has some pretty blooms on it.
Have a beautiful Sunday!
