Misnomer

Yellow four o'clock flowers (there are pink ones, too, but the pink here is balsam)

Yellow four o’clock flowers (there are pink ones, too, but the pink here is balsam)

Our courtyard has a small section given over to four o’clock flowers.

They insist on growing in the gravel there rather than in the flowerbed above where they were planted.

They also show a very independent spirit about when they open their flowers.

Four o’clock is wildly inaccurate;  these ones don’t open till late evening.

Then they party all through the night and into the next morning.

This post is my 730th since I started posting regularly every day. To complete 2 years, I need one more because 2012 was a leap year! At the precise anniversary, I’ll be moving over lock, stock and barrel to Daily Reflection on our company website, where you’ll already find a duplicate of this photo. Please come and follow me there!

      Thank you. I can never decide whether the yellow or the pink ones are prettier …
