Aaaah .... Beautiful Four O'clocks! I love these plants, even though they seem to take over here in my yard if I don't pay close attention!

I have never planted these but I have some seed started for this year. My DIL thinks I'm crazy since they can get rampant. I gotta place they can roam.

I've never had them before either, but thanks to Lin, I've got seeds and a tuber for this year! Yay! Plus, they won't go rampant up here in the north. They're annuals! Can't wait! Thanks Lin!
