Today I went out to my mom & dad's for a little visit.
They still live in the house I was raised in, just 5 miles south of Rochester,
The house sits on a 3/4 acre lot with plenty of beautiful plants adorning the grounds.
Mom and I have the tradition of walking around looking at the beautiful flowers...
...pulling up a few weeds and admiring mom's gorgeous plants
Miniature hollyhocks from my aunt Helens garden's
Then there's the apple tree....
This is only the beginning of what's to come
The most beautiful plant of all is this GIANT hibiscus
I didn't have a ruler but that bloom had to be 6-8 inches in diameter
there are still tons of buds just waiting to open.... I want!
Large Hollyhocks....do you remember my past post on mom's Hollyhock dolls???
stay tuned for a repeat post, coming soon...
