A Summer Couplet

Moonflowers are night-blooming dwellers,
perfect for night owls and late night strollers.

    You have a good idea for a couplet by describing moonflowers. The one questionable item you have is your word "ambler". The verb "amble" is defined as "to walk slowly and casually".. I have never heard of flowers walking; so I don't believe "ambler" is an appropriate word here. Perhaps "dwellers" would fit in your couplet better.

    Robert thank you for the suggestion. Much appreciated. You are absolutely right my friend. Warm Smiles, Connie
