What I Get for Complaining
The lilies were done; the glads finished blooming only days before; the sunflowers weren't out yet; the maximilians hadn't even started producing buds; the morning glories were merely vines; never mind the trumpet vines and bittersweet that look like they won't put out any blossoms at all.
And then the day after the fun is done, I come home from work and find that my hibiscus is blooming!!
Wow! What a treat.
Both plants came through their first winter and have grown to about 2 - 3 feet tall.
This is the first bloom but I see buds for half a dozen more.
Thanks again, Tom, for passing on your hibiscus "babies" last summer! Are these the same colour as your plant?
