Night-scented stock

It's a pity you can't smell the the deep floral fragrance from the patch of stock now growing in profusion in my garden. The tiny flowers are in hues of rose,  pink, lavender, magenta, maroon or white although in the last residual rays of light they look more blue. The 2 second exposure shows movement in the night breeze.  
The smell of the flowers has been described as resembling vanilla with some rose and spice mixed in. The nasturtiums in the foreground are a contrast, with the solar lights echoing the flower tones. That's a happy coincidence!  The extra was taken in the evening sunshine.
