The evening primrose is a very unique flowering plant producing a tight rosette of flowers the first year, but the flowers are located spirally on a stem the second year. It produces flowers from late spring to late summer. The flowers are hermaphrodite, meaning that they open visibly fast in the evening and only last until noon the following day. The flower has a bright nectar guide pattern visible to the pollinators like moths, butterflies and bees but we have to use ultraviolet light to see the guide. The seed capsule bursts into four sections at maturity, providing food for the birds and seeds for the next generation of evening primroses. What delightfully interesting features!!
Perhaps the Lord really enjoyed designing that one.
There’s joy on the sunny side.

* Restore proper funding to schools to give students the resources and supports they need to succeed.
* Promote and protect quality public health care, including tackling B.C.’s overdose crisis and expanding treatment for people living with addictions.
* Get people moving by providing people with disabilities access to the transportation supports they need, including an annual bus pass for those who want one, and working with communities and the federal government on new transit and transportation projects.
3. Help build a strong, sustainable economy,
where all British Columbians share in the benefits of the province’s resources, innovation and talent by:
* Continuing to sustainably support traditional industries, including forestry, mining, agriculture and aquaculture, as well as natural gas development.
