Chicory Mystery

Hello Chicory.
What a hot day it is
and I see you blooming
two new flowers on the same old stem,
that two days ago I pictured here
the blooms now invisible........then,
so today I am intrigued
you have created further mystery,
now, 14 petals to each flower,
do you add them by the hour????

Every herb book I do browse,
gives a clue
are unusual.

Goodness me,
I will see
what tomorrows bloom
will show me.
 - ???? -

This is a full resolution, uncropped photo
taken this morning. 
It shows the smaller bloom
 lower on the stem
of the same one plant.
14 petals on this flower too.

I ask You?

  1. On the next day, the only two flowers had 18 petals each..
    So perhaps I will be a chicory flower petal-counter.

    Or leave nature to bring more mysteries for me to see.

    With love to anyone, who counts chicory petals.

    And the truth is - Dr Edward Bach, UK, Bach Flower Remedies has a Chicory Remedy.
    In the book "Illustrated Handbook of the Bach Flower Remedies" by Philip M. Chancellor (CW Daniel Company Ltd),the drawing of Chicory flower shows 18 petals.
