evening primrose

Not many of these in our garden this year. Because of the heat and the drought, I guess.
The flowers of many species open in the evening, hence the name "evening primrose". They may open in under a minute. Most species have yellow flowers, but some have white, purple, pink, or red.
Official name: Oenothera.
Dutch name: teunisbloem.
How lovely

These are so pretty. I don't think I've seen them before.....but used by herbalists I think.
It's so nice to find new plants that can be added to the garden!

In ieder gaval hebben we deze mooie opname, met een vlinder als bonus.

I look especially nice when viewed on black. It makes the color pop right off the page. What a pretty little flower

Toendertijd (en nu nog wel) was het vooral te doen om indruk te maken.

I used to have some of these - they would pop out in the middle of a flower bed and sort of climb away! They are a lovely yellow and have a beautiful name!

Lovely....so many plants affected by the hot, dry weather this summer. One of our ground covering conifers is dying, even though it was watered.
