I noticed this hibiscus's first bloom of the season part way through the day. It's been a busy one. The friend who called awhile back to tell us about the irises in the dumpster of the sorority she was in, called today to say they had extra mulch, so we made a couple trips, and I got some of it spread around today.
When we first moved here, there weren't any flower beds, but we had this space between the back of our garage/carport and our next door neighbor's yard, about 2 1/2 feet wide. Larry wanted different kinds of grass in there, but I insisted on some flowers as well. We found both at a grocery store's garden area. It's really too small a space, and I've pulled out some of the grass that kept spreading into the neighbor's yard. The only time we see these flowers is when we walk out the back door. They are on the other side of the fence that encloses my herb garden. I chose the photo that shows lots of flower buds.
Have a great weekend!
