So many people said how well they enjoyed my post about the Four O’Clocks of my childhood that I’ve decided to show some more of my recently-taken  pictures of them.

Their diversity of colour, and their marked habit of responding to the conditions of light, certainly grab my attention.

Aren’t they quite amazing plants?

      They are, David. One of my greatest pleasures in summer is to observe them during the late afternoon.

      I once found reference to them in a gardening book, but in general they seem to be overlooked, or otherwise dismissed as weeds, perhaps. I have seen them growing in a couple of other gardens. They grow from seed or tuber, but have a habit of spreading very readily. Anyway, I still love them 🙂
