If You Could Bloom Just One Day Or Less...
Would you go flamboyant ? This hibiscus puts it out there for everyone to see with its huge red , wide open, blossom. That's a lot of flower for just one day!
Maybe elegance would be nice. The fragile blue blossom atop delicate foliage of this perennial flax is so lovely. Sometimes it coyly drops its petals in less than a day.
Perhaps you might glow with a light from within like "Grandpa Ott" morning glory. This purple blossom with a red star that seems to have a light source all its own is a sure attention getter.
Today these blooms had their one chance for pollination. They made the best of it. Tomorrow other blossoms will take their place. In the garden and in life, when it's your chance to bloom , go for it in the style that suits you best!
