4 O'clocks from summer

4 O'clocks are a flower I remember from childhood. Also had them at the first house my husband and I lived in.
Have not had them in several years until my husband came home with seeds this last spring.When we came home from vacation the first of November the frost had gotten these, they were totally gone. Notice the difference in every bloom. That is the most unusual part of this plant.
I am posting these today because several blogs I have visited have mentioned the dreary days. It seems everybody needs some color to cheer them up today.
Hope you enjoy seeing the colors of summer.

I did not know that they came in any other color than the pink...and I haven't seen any since I was a kid and my mom had them.
