Right, so – here we go! My first bloom was last week, on Thursday.
So here is Friday:
I had two on Sunday but didn’t go out front until they were already drooping. Sorry!
Monday: a pink one!
Another twofer, but this one wanted a closeup.
And on another plant, one with a different shape.
Sad, isn’t it, to see the shrivelled remains of yesterday’s glory?
Hubby asked me did I think they bloomed at night, or early in the morning. I had trouble sleeping last night so I came downstairs at 4:30 am, and had a peek out the window – nope, they don’t. At 6:30, starting to unfurl but not fully open yet. By 9:30 when I leave for work they are perfect! No scent, by the way, just gorgeousness.
They are gorgeous.
Aren’t they, though? I’m so glad to have them.
Wow. Now these are my kind of flowers!
Me too! I’m about to get a glut tomorrow, it will be awesome!
They are something else aren’t they. Amazing colours 🙂
Wish I could spend more time with them! Stupid job taking me away from my plants 🙂
It does seem the most incredibly complex flower to last only one day.
Yes! So much work the skinny little greenery puts into making that one flower so FAST and so beautiful, you’d think they would last longer! But as the seeds are viable, maybe that’s the main gimmick?
Aren’t they? So much beauty!
These are just so RED. With stylish leopard spots even….nature always dresses well with so little effort.
Close to 100F this weekend – and for a few days. UGH. Little plants will be so sad and wilty. Me, too – tired of the indoors!
That is a problem I sure don’t have! It was about 30 today in the sun… Google says that’s 86 your money. Everyone at work was dying! I just wanted to sunbask.
