Georgia: The Prostitute Flowers

Rustavi, Georgia.

On a walk, Nely, my hostess and cultural informant, pointed out to me Georgia's "prostitute flowers"  - or bozi flowers.

They are called such because they only come out in the evening, all dressed up and ready to party. In the morning, they close up shop for a much-needed rest.

Bad girls (tsudi gogos).

In America, of course, we call them 4 o'clocks.
