There are many flowers in that Subfamily Hydrophylloideae native to this region. If you get a chance to hike this weekend, keep an eye out for similar looking flowers and investigate whether they are good plants for pollinators too!

When it warms up this weekend, can you check to see how the petals fared this week's heavy rain? Do you see anything new growing up in following the heavy rains? Are pollinators moving around to different plants?

I agree with Leo, it's cool that the plant blooms for a shorter period of time, but continues living through the summer! I am going to watch how my flowering plants change week-to-week.

Hi! Have the flower blossoms grown since you took this photo?

That picture of a wasp is incredible. You pose a really good question regarding whether wasps are pollinators. Do you notice wasps on other flowers, bushes, or plants nearby too? Have you noticed ants coming to the flower yet? Are ants pollinators? Do you see pollen?

Hi! That's a nice find. Did you notice any insects, worms, slugs, or arachnids also nearby? Do you think it would be interesting to check on the flowers early in the morning, around 2pm on a sunny day, and once more after dinner just to observe what times are more active? Please share your findings if you do so.
