    Unfurling beauties.

  4. Robin says:

    How beautiful! The vibrant color feels good on the eyes after the subtle colors of winter (we’ve had a lot of greys here lately).

  5. Lovely way to start the day. 🙂

  6. Treah Pichette says:

    I remember these! 😉

    I’ve never heard of Godetia, but I once had a pair of cacti I named Godot and Godette because I had to wait forever for them to bloom. Clearly, Godetia doesn’t have that issue!

  8. Alice says:

    So cheerful! Showing how happy it is to be in your care! Not familiar with Godetia…looked it up.

  9. Such a pretty flower. It looks like you got it to bloom indoors. I had to look it up and I have seen it in catalogs, but never in person.

      Thank you, Judy. They were cut flowers from Trader Joe’s market. They have marvelous selections at great prices. In NH, they have stores in Bedford, Nashua and Portsmouth. We love their store! Have you ever shopped at one?

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Oops, that previous reply wasn’t for you! Thanks, AG, as I said, a cut flower from TJs! 🙂

  11. It blooms inside for you?! I can barely get it to grow outside.

  12. Dale says:

    Oh wow. That is so beautiful!

  13. Debbie says:

    I’m not familiar with this one, but it’s lovely!

  14. Pepper says:

    Lovely image of such pretty blossoms. I think I have only seen these in conservatories. It seems like they should attract butterflies. Do they? 😊

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Thank you, Pepper. I assume so, they are a native flower of western North America in the evening primrose family. These didn’t have much scent, but they were very pretty!

  15. What a gorgeous color and photo to brighten the day!🙂

  16. Along the lines of a certain play, it looks like you were Waiting for Godetia.

  17. Tina says:

    I’m not familiar with this beauty. It’s a West Coast plant; that color!! Nice post for a chilly February day, Eliza!

  18. That’s quite a striking flower, Eliza. A lovely color to enjoy as we wait for stick season to come to a close. Is that a little snow I see through the window in the background? I’ve almost forgotten what it looks like. 🙂

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Thanks, Steve. Yes, there’s still snow in the hilltowns. Sunny areas are melted, but it persists in the shadows. But my snowdrops next to the house are up!

  19. Beautiful and bright image.Anita

  20. Maria says:

    The colours really brighten things up this dark morning 🙂

    This picture reminds me that flowers are the promise of life’s longing for itself. I think Khalil Gibran said exactly this

  22. Bela Johnson says:

    Rose of Sharon? Lovely!🌺

  23. Very lovely shades of pink.

  24. bittster says:

    Cool that you were able to find them, I love the colors and wish they liked our warm summers more!

  25. Flowerpoet says:

    Lovely beauty. 😍💕✨

    So nice to see pictures of godetia, I have grown them reliably from seed a few times but seen so few otherwise and they are so pretty.
