I couldn't find the file of pics I exported for the post I was going to write, so I uploaded this hibiscus flower from last summer, and then forgot to see what date it was taken. I just couldn't stand to have this long go by without putting up another post. Well, the days are getting longer! I have been telling people I like January better than November because it is closer to spring. It is currently 33 degrees F. The temps are still going up and down, and are expected to this week. There's talk of more snow, too. That's OK with me for a couple more months. I am hoping the weather is warmer in the spring than it was the last couple of years.
This hibiscus is behind our garage, and we don't have a good view of it, but our neighbor friend enjoys it from her back yard. I hope you all are having a good start to 2009!
