Floral Friday – Mirabilis Jalapa

Mirabilis jalapa, the marvel of Peru

Drought – extreme drought conditions for where I live. No rain since September, however while I was outside today I notice the one of my 4 O’Clock plants was coming back out and even had a couple blooms.  I guess they really are drought tolerant.

I really hope this is a sign that we will have rain soon.  Everything is so brown, dusty and walking across the lawn the grass crunches under my feet.  Here’s a photo I took a while back when the 4 O’Clocks were loving the rainy weather!
