We noticed the flower stalk kind of followed the sun, and was pointing west at the end of the day. Yesterday evening it began opening flowers.
This morning the flowers have opened even more and they are really rather dazzling for our dry, arid climate.
Spring has also brought out the invasion of the Miller moths. Seems our milder winter has made their migration earlier, and they are plentiful. I'm happy to have enticed wild birds with regular feeding that like to eat moths as well!
