I Heart Macro

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!


  1. Please take another picture when the tuberose blooms open, I would love to see what they look like. I wish there was a button to push on the computer to be able to smell the flowers that are pictured. I love phlox they are so pretty and delicate, just like T said.
