Nicotiana–#AtoZChallenge

Welcome to the third week of the A to Z Challenge.  My theme for this year is flowers, and my quest is to improve my skills on photoshop.

Nicotiana is another flower that I used to grow in my garden.  The trumpet shaped flowers bloom at dusk.   It sends out its sweet perfume at night.  Although the flowers come in different colors, I always grew the white ones.  One kind of nicotiana is the tobacco plant used to make cigarettes, etc.

It never gets very dark in the city–there are lights everywhere.  Still, I liked to go sit on the back steps and look at the flowers glowing in the moonlight and the alley light and breathe the lovely scent.  I don’t miss my old house, although I loved it.  But I do miss my wild garden with rainbows of colors and scents.

I am working on getting my first book, a fantasy novel for young people, published and am busy spinning on my new spinning wheel. I have been a Waldorf early childhood teacher for 10 years now, and before that, I was a lawyer. Teaching is much more fun.
