My mom's gift


My mom and brother came up for a visit two weeks ago, and one day while she was in town, she came over with this beautiful hibiscus as a surprise. It's certainly not a local plant, but she tried. We haven't been getting enough sun for it to thrive, but we certainly have been getting enough rain. Apparently it hasn't rained for four days now downtown, which is the first time that's happened since June 7 this year. (You can even see rain drops on the petals: that's my proof.)

Oh that is gorgeous! We have pink ones and white ones - but I am yearning for yellow and oranges...just like that one. Beautiful!

Sure you didn't just spray that with your spray bottle?

Very pretty flower. It's been such a long while and I just wanted to stop by and say hi.

How's it going with Bean?

Oh, and ha ha, you're a vegetarian, aren't you (regarding your comment on my last post)?
