Mirabilis Jalapa

“Four O’clock flower”, “Belle de Nuit”, in Italy this flower is called “Bella di notte ” – one of the best things about having and loving flowers is the joy of planting them and the privilege to see something which only nature can bring. An amazing sight of natural colors which can really make a hard day seem a memory.

It’s already Autumn in Italy. I miss the colors of spring flowers, the warmth of the summer sun, now I see the falling leaves of autumn… the red/brown and golden colors that can brighten a gloomy Autumn day. Today, I saw the vibrant colors of the “Bella di notte” and it swept away the troubled thoughts and it brought me back to reality.

Wishing everyone a pleasant day!
