Beautiful, isn't it?
This gorgeous flower blooms large for one day. I think it's lovely. I saw it open earlier today, by the time I got down to photograph it there was a japanese beetle chewing away at it's delicate petals. Shouldn't those awful pests be gone by now? I don't know about you, but for me it's been the year of the pests. I have somehow attracted every possible pest local to this area. Anyway, aren't my okra beautiful?
