Two things...

Yes that's right the pink flower is only it's 2nd ever bloom.

...and I bought me a new plant over the weekend
I've been so jealous of my mom's amazing Hibiscus, that I had to have one of my own
Isn't it beautiful 
8" blooms and sooooo many buds yet to open  :)

  1. What type of hydrangea, Jackie. I have an endless summer hydrangea, which I moved this year. And it's not doing any better in its new location. Now, my Annabelle hydrangea, that's flourished for several years.

    The hibiscus is gorgeous. Are you going to winter this over?

    1. I cant remember the kind of hydrangea, It's on the south side of my house, it always looks healthy but wont bloom :(
      The hibiscus is called a "hardy hibiscus", I just need to cover it during winter, hopefully it'll come back next year. My mom does nothing to hers in the winter and it comes back every year. I'll cross my fingers :)

    1. I really struggled with the color Cheri, finally went with that Red, it was unique and so pretty against our white house

  6. Very gorgeous hibiscus! After last year's drought, I dug up my hydrangea and wintered it in my basement. This summer, I put it outside in the ground and it grew AND bloomed!! We'll see about next year. Audrey said hers has been outdoors these winters but I am tempted to dig it up for this winter, too. Haven't decided! Hugs.....
