Does it mean you are getting old.......

......when you sit on the deck at 8:30 p.m. on a weekend just to watch a flower open??
Evening primrose has got to be one of the most 'fun' flowers. In a matter of seconds, you can watch a flower unfurl and within 15 minutes it's covered in blooms. By morning they start turning to mush but by dusk it's ready to put on another show all over again.

A nearby retirement home ran an article last year about the residents gathering by the evening primrose each night to count the blooms as they opened. And here my dh and I were doing the same thing. Gosh, don't that make a person feel old! Won't be ready for the retirement home for another 40 years or so, but at least I know they have good entertainment. LOL

I think it means you're more interesting. Pity the poor souls who never notice nature's beauty!

I have two sizable clumps of evening primrose,but I never knew they did that. Must watch for it one evening - if I can distract the mosquitoes long enough to see it.
