Hello, Rose of Sharon (and more)

Big petals.

My dear wife Karen’s careful clipping up front at A Bitty Better in the Liverpool neighborhood of Galeville has paid off again this month of August.

She asked if I’d looked closely at the tallest of our front yard garden plants last weekend.

The Rose of Sharon had bloomed, big and bright.

Wide open.

I had to get up close to those petals.

Colors!

The rest of her layout in that section looks darn nice, too.

Beautiful border.

I’m not sure if these Black-eyed Susans on the far side of the driveway were put in by our neighbor or the previous owner, but I am certain that they come up with a dramatic beauty.

By the way, Karen is already talking about areas where we can plant more Rose of Sharon next spring.’

Bring it on.
