Mellow Yellow Monday (For Monday, May 9, 2011)



This is a flower called 'Four O'clock.'

The flowers open in the late afternoon, and on overcast, rainy and gloomy days!
They add a bright and welcomed show, where ever they choose to grow and bloom!

Another interesting thing about them is the way the flower colors mingle... I'm constantly amazed and delighted at some of the combinations I see in the flowers!

  They grow wild here at our place and come back every year in the little garden I've set aside for  my mom's remembrance garden. Mom loved these flowers and I'm always happy to see them start to grow and bloom again every spring! By the end of late summer the plants have grown tall and straggly but the sweet little flowers make it all worth while! They have a glorious scent and attract butterflies and hummingbirds.

I have yellow and dark pink ones that grow together in this spot and the flowers  are ever changing!
I like that!

Lovely Junie!
I like the one pink petal in the first shot.

I've been on vacation. Hope all is well with you.

Oh, Junie, they truly are delightful with their various colours! I was wondering why their name rang a bell then I remembered having bought a packet of seeds of Four O'Clock flowers a few years back. I planted them but nothing ever grew...that's my luck with seeds! lol Guess what, my first daffodil finally bloomed yesterday and the tulips are just about ready to bloom...woohoo! hehe xoxo
