Several of our local farms have been planting flax the past few years, much to many residents delight. A flax field in full bloom is purely a joy to behold.
Each morning about two hours after sunrise a new blossom blooms and then falls later in the day. The plants continue this for about a week and then the seeds start to form.
In the moonlight?
No, flax need the sunshine in order to open and they’ve dropped the blossom long before the moon comes out. I was playing around with my editing software but this could pass for moonlight if one didn’t understand how the plants function.
