Rose of Sharon -- first one, first day!

I just noticed the first day of the Rose of Sharon bud opening. I love their pink color! Once they get in place, they can easily take over, but I'm trying to create a nice Rose of Sharon tree. I have some bushes started in a few places, but it's the tree that I'm really enjoying!

Spider Wort and Day Lilies

Here's the same spider wort plant and day lily cluster at different times of the day!

Flowers by the Hour

Did you know that you can make a clock with flowers?

I guess I'm not the first one to notice that flowers open their faces at different times of day.

I'll keep you posted on the opening times of the orange daylilies and my hybiscus.
