So What...

If I have to take a garden walk at 6:30 in the a.m. to see the Four O' Clocks open.







It was worth it.

Header Challenge this afternoon...theme will be trees.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Today I am Thankful for blogging friends and the little games we play.

You see at the bottom of my post where is says posted at 3:46 a.m.? How do I change that?

Twisted Fencepost said...

Can't say that I blame you. Why have them if you can't see their pretty faces?!
If you go to your settings, somewhere in there should be a time setting. They are usually set to GMT, Greenwich Mean Time. I know that in Wordpress it can be changed to EST. Good luck!

Deb said...

mine haven't started blooming yet...very pretty...

Millie said...

Those are very nice...a good array of colors

Dar said...

What a worthwhile stroll through your gorgeous 4 O'Clocks. I never knew there were yellow ones...or are my eyes teasing me. Thanks for sharing.
Have as gorgeous of a day

Susie said...

I like the rosey colored ones the best. In Atlanta, mine always bloomed around 9 p.m. I reckon they are just easily confused.

Early morning is the best time to be outdoors! No mosquitoes and it's still cool. Aren't they good for getting rid of Japanese beetles?

tina said...

My absolute favorite smelling flower of all time!s

Roses and Lilacs said...

Aren't those pretty. Love that creamy color. I absolutely must remember to try growing some four o'clocks next year. I know they do well here because Mom and Dad remember growing them years ago.

Love 4 o'clocks! The fragrant ones are outstanding.

They ares so lovely Darla. I like the splashy or rippled color ones so much. I have a couple that are still small yet from seeds so mine will be awhile yet.What a beautiful start of a day to visit the beds of flowers.

NanaK said...

I enjoyed walking through your four o'clocks. I have the pink ones and they bloom in the early part of the morning for me as well. Sometimes they open again around 8PM. Love all your different colors.

Tatyana@MySecretGarden said...

Darla, they certainly worth of getting up so early! Now, I am asking myself why don't I have them in my garden?

Becca's Dirt said...

Beautiful 4 O'clocks. They are such beautiful colors.

2.1/2 hours late Darla.
lol
Beautiful post.

Dorothy said...

Darla, I've seen that time thing wrong on mine, too. Gorgeous flowers in this post and the one before this. We never had yellow FOUR O'CLOCKS! loved the pink Hollyhocks! We always had those at home when I was a child (back in the dark ages).
Praying that your Dad and daughter will be alright.

4 o'clocks are great. Mine come up on their own and fill in after the love-in-a-mist and bachelor buttons are done. Love your photos.

bakingbarb said...

I've not grown 4 O'clocks in sometime, I will just come look at yours! Beautiful colors.

Lois said...

Definitely worth it! They are gorgeous!

sweet bay said...

You asked where I am and which zone -- central NC, zone 7b.

Darla: Love the morning flowers, can't wait to see your trees.

Catherine@AGardenerinProgress said...

I don't think I've ever seen 4 o'clocks before. They are really pretty. Definitely worth getting up early for!

Julie said...

My cousin has these in her yard on the other side of Florida (she is on the west coast), but I have never seen hers when they have been in bloom! They sure are sweet! I like the kinda stripey ones best!

Martha (MM) said...

Hi Darla,
Just popping in on header challenge day, I'll try to come back if I can since you haven't posted it yet - your post is great though :-)

To answer your question - just go into "edit posts" and down at the bottom you can change the time on the post. If it's always showing an incorrect time you have to go into your settings to change the posting time to your time zone. Hope This helps.

George said...

I think those beautiful flowers are worth getting out for. I try to get out early in the morning to see our flowers as well.

Grace Peterson said...

Hi Darla~~ Well, they sure are lovely, if not unpredictable. :)

I was thinking your computer's clock might be set to a different time zone, maybe? Hopefully Martha's advice will fix it.

perennialgardener said...

Wow you have a wonderful variety of colors. I think I finally got rid of all of mine. They were taking over. But I guarantee I'll find a few seedlings popping up if I go look today. ;)

Those are pretty blooms. The display of colors are great. Wonderful shot! Thank you for sharing.
