I imagine walking in such a garden on a summer evening as moonlight casts shadows and emphases white flowers and shimmery plants among the greenery.
Nightfall brings entirely new and intoxicating fragrances to the night garden - scents that awaken the senses to a unique garden experience.

I am working to establish mine, planting as many white flowers as I can find.
Another element of the night garden is "glow in the dark" ornaments, such as the one pictured below. I set it up today and anxiously awaited nightfall to see if it really worked.
There are many of these around, but most have an LED element that causes them to glow in the dark. This one had no such thing and I wasn't sure how, or if, it would work.
|I noticed as I was setting it up that one stone is missing! I must look around tomorrow to see if I can locate it.|
Here's a picture taken after dark. Hmmm, it doesn't glow that much.
Kinda like the other dragonfly I bought a few weeks ago that was supposed to glow in the dark; it doesn't either.
I won't be outdone! I have Glow In The Dark paint on my shopping list that is going to be used to paint flower pots, so I'll apply a little paint to my dragonflies as well.
Here's a picture of what the glow in the dark paint looks like on pots at night.
I am still collecting rocks for my garden and plan to paint them with Glow In The Dark Paint as well. As you can see, I am very busy these days.
Do you have any glow in the dark ornaments in your garden? If so, please share your experience with them. Thank you!
