#NewThisDay Writing From My Photo Stream
I love learning the names of wild plants. Yesterday morning I took a picture of a bright yellow, four-petaled flower I didn't recognize. When I looked it up at home, I learned: evening primrose. But, I wondered why it was wide open in the morning.
Instead of walking this morning, I took a run,and crossing a different meadow, saw out of the corner of my eye what I instantly guessed was evening primrose - unopened. After more searching today, I learned the evening primrose opens around 9 p.m. in the evening, and it stays open until about noon the next day. I also found a youtube video of an evening primrose opening - you can watch it below. All this naming and observing and mystery solving of beautiful plants growing wild simply makes me very happy, and very satisfied.
