Nap-at-noon

A flower that, like me, likes to close its eyes at mid-day for a nap; most commonly known as Star of Bethlehem.

Hmmmm. I like myself a nap around 3pm. But, my those flowers are adorable!

(Typo alert: Behtlehem.)

We have a bunch of them in the yard, but I've never noticed they close up at mid-day. Shame on me.

I do like my after-lunch power nap (not to be confused with some kind of lazy siesta).

I can't find them in my New England guide, guess we don't have them. They sure are pretty. Looks like they grow in the grass like bluets.

Rabbit's Guy: Sleeping while commenting can be dangerous!

Liza: Yeah... that's the magic hour for me too.

Dave: Thanks for spotting that.

Lots of people I work with go to their cars for a nap at lunch, but I wouldn't dare... too afraid I wouldn't wake up on time.

Bobbie: Yeah, I love 'em too, even though the spread like crazy.

Sandy: They do grow like bluets, yes. They're a garden flower, really, and the bulbs find themselves in the most inconvenient places.

That's a chuckle--a flower you can emulate.

Beautiful flowers. I have never seen them before. I prefer a short nap at about 4 PM to keep me going in the evening ;-)

Why can't we import the tradition of mid-day siestas? We import everything else!
