I want to tell you about my hibiscus. They’re all over the west side of my yard. They’re hardy hibiscus, not to be confused with tropical hibiscus. They start blooming in July and they continue until the frost.
They make pretty, even in the winter.
But right now, they’re in their full glory.
They’re lush and green half the year, which is lovely, because the abandoned house behind them is not lovely at all.
The view from my bedroom window is gorgeous. I have nothing to do with it, so surely I’m not braggin.
They’re so wow this time of year.
They burst with color.
You can’t really see in the photos, but they’re pink, hot pink, purple, lavender, and white.
Midday, they’re swarming with busy, busy bees.
They self-seed. I presume. There are more of them every year and I’m not planting or propagating them. I don’t do anything with them, and yet they spread.
I’m guessing the birds help, because today I found one blooming along the east side of house with the morning glory…
Sometimes I like things about summer. But only a few things.
