Have you ever seen an evening primrose?
Our plant shoots up buds
that take a day or two or three to mature,
then unfurl into beautiful yellow flowers,
only in the evening,
and only for that night -
by the morning they are wilting away.
We thought our plant was not coming back this year,
but it has come back with even more plants than last year!
My hubby sets his phone alarm for 8:30 each night
to go out and watch the blossoms unfurl into flowers.
Last night he was very excited because he saw at least 10 buds that could burst,
and we had company -
it's always more exciting with someone to share the beauty!
Unfortunately, the timing seemed to have changed last night;
the flowers had bloomed before they got there :-(

We've read that this flower
also comes in purple!
