As a matter of fact, it's 4 o'clock here. 4am, that is. But my last post got a warm reception, so I'm wondering if that photo was just that good (maybe), or if 4am is a rockin' time here on G+ (more likely). Let's see how this one does…
This is a Four O'clock flower bud just starting to open. I thought it's shape was interesting and I liked the light and shadow play.
I had a heck of a time all summer with my Four O'clocks. They really don't open during the heat of the day, and we had a hot summer for so long they didn't seem to open at all. I theorized that they were opening in the cool hours of the morning, but of course there's no way to test that theory.
Finally, the weather cooled and the Four O'clocks showed me their beautiful flowers and it was well worth the wait. I took photos one evening and always planned to shoot more, but the time got away from me for now they are gone. They should be back next year – Four O'clocks self seed like crazy 🙂
