Four O'Clocks

I wonder how they know what time it is.
Always open at the same time each day.
Blossoms of so many different colors.
They have always truly amazed me.
How could they not be my favorites?
My colorful blooming Four O'Clocks.

These are my favorite flowers too..after all if the butterflies love them and the hummingbirds, who am I to say they are inferior to roses? Your voice is clear and I can visualize you wandering in a garden....Victoria PS thanks for your kind remarks on my poetry. I haven't shared poetry for nearly 20 years with anyone...

Carol, I am so glad to find someone that is amazed by four o'clocks as much as me, my grand daughters pick them all the time, I have them all over in my yard and look forward to seeing the hummingbirds that are attracted to them, Love, Love, Love this poem, Love Debra

This is a truly beautiful write my friend! I am tickled that you wrote a poem about these flowers as they are one of my favorite flowers too! They have a certain timely beauty about them, one that they only show for a short time of each day! This is a fabulous poem all about this wondrous flower, Great Work!!
