The Four O'clocks are blooming. These flowers are tough as nails and will bloom at the edge of the roadside where they must be rooted in Class Five or pure gravel.
They open up by 4 O’ Clock and bloom until the next morning when they wilt.
These are the individual blooms.
They are noted as being a highly adaptable plant and are native to Minnesota.
I usually look for a few down by one of the stop signs…but the ditch mower mowed them off. Last night we went for a longer ride and found these on one of the backroads that has not been mowed yet.
We are getting a warm spell starting tomorrow…and already discussing what our favorite it’s too hot to eat much for supper foods will be. Fruit and salad top the list followed by BLT’s and “wraps” that we make with chicken, lettuce, cheese and tomato topped with a little bit of salad dressing of your choice…mine was Ranch and Far Guys was something Chipotle…they were a hit last week when Jen came to visit and prepared supper for us. I think summer has finally arrived.
