An Early Morning Delight!
The farmhouse Four O'clocks surprised me yesterday morning with their first bloom. I thought Four O'clocks were supposed to open at 4 or 5 O'clock in the afternoon, not at 4 A.M.!
The story behind these plants:
I have been on a quest to have lots of old fashioned plants in the yard and I remembered my paternal grandmother had a large four O'clock bush. I remember exactly where it was and that I collected seeds from it. So I bought some seeds and have started my own plants.
Meanwhile, in the front porch flower bed, a mysterious plant was growing. I wasn't sure if it was a weed or a plant, so I left it alone and watered it. I actually almost pulled it up last week because I had decided it must be a weed.
Well, as you've probably figured out by now the mystery plant is a Four O'clock, so now I should have plenty of them, in all stages of growth!
