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!
