the other day i mentioned flowers that can be affected by temperature, slowing their opening timetable.   here are a couple of examples.  7 AM Cleveland Ohio on July 3rd 2015.  About 61 Fahrenheit.  these two flowers are next to each other in the same section of the garden.  and as you can see there is a difference in the rate of opening.  and if you look at the other flowers  in each picture they are  behaving consistently as the other flowers on that plant.   and to be honest the darker flower is not completely open.   when it is the petals will be just as far back as the sepals.  three images…
