(Don't miss the three posts for this weekend. You may not have seen the bottom post pics)

Watch The Evening Primrose Open!

Every Summer it is a ritual for all the neighbourhood kids to come over to my parent's house at sunset and watch the magic of the Evening Primrose opening.
This video is in real time.

Ah, I never seen that one, what a show it must be!

We saw a cactus specie in Paraguay, that is commonly referred to as nightblooming cereus, queen of the night - though it was some other specie.

That is just to amazing! Evening primrose! Hmmm...will have to seek that out for my garden next year! Very nice flower and you did a wonderful catch of the opening. Great presentation! Thanks for stopping by and I hope we do figure out what my bug was! Have a great day!

Great little video. :) I had evening primrose for the first two years that I had my garden but it died off. I was amazed at how it opened in the evening as well.

That was really fun to watch. Thanks for sharing.
My mom had a Moon Flower plant that was fun to watch at night too!
Enjoy the rest of your Sunday!

We have Evening Primrose in our front Garden which is slow this year due to draught conditions in the South of England. It is only a third of the size it was last year
