Flower of the Day – January 16, 2018 – Portulaca (Purslane)

The weirdness of the weather continues, but as long as it encourages plants like this to flower, i am in no way complaining.

After the Hundred degree temps of the weekend, Monday provided the wettest January day in 18 years, a hundred millimitres (4 inches) of rain fell in 24 hours! To put that in proper perspective this is Summer and that is more than our average total rainfall for the four months to the end of April. It’s roughly similar to getting a foot of snow on the 4th of July – in Texas!

The following day the sun had reappeared and these beauties were taking full advantage! 🙂

Cee’s Flower of the Day – January 16, 2018 – Magnolia Bud




  1. Wow. I didn’t recognize these as moss roses until I saw the photo of the entire plant. The white one is especially beautiful in closeups. The red flower in your heading looks like an eye. Had you noticed that?
