Nature Finds: Sun and Moon

 Over the weekend, Ethan went out to do the chores early in the morning so we could go to the Folk Festival.  The evening time out there is beautiful because of the sunsets and fireflies, but in the early mornings are all silvery with dew.

When he arrived one day he noticed something interesting in the garden.

 The blooming sunflowers were facing east where the sun was rising.  They follow the movement of sun all day long across the sky.

The evening primroses were still open (they close soon after the sun rises and the day becomes hot).  They were all facing west where the nearly full moon was sinking below the tree line.  You can see in the background how the sunflower is facing the opposite way.

Do the evening primroses follow the moon?
