Hibiscus

Good morning,

That pretty flower is a type of hardy hibiscus, commonly called Rose of Sharon.  The hibiscus growing here at our place are pink and white.

We have many of these shrubs in our garden, but, due to several very dry weeks, not as many blossoms as we have had in other years.

Autumn is upon us!

The Rose of Sharon in my yard is taking over! Both the pink and the white varieties. We at one time planted a small shrub and it has reseeded itself and now we have three TREES! I just looked out the window and it looks like we are nearly past the blooming season...
