Blending in–Hibiscus: FOTD June 16, 2020


I just noticed this cream-colored hibiscus with a red throat for the first time–two blooms in among a  bush with a profusion of bright coral blooms. It is on a good-sized bush that has woven itself into the fabric of the other even larger bush, so must have been there for a long time as I haven’t planted hibiscus along that wall for over ten years. Where has it been hiding all these years? Or is it I who have been hiding? This period of forced isolation has revealed some amazing secrets about my back garden and after all these years I am beginning to feel that instead of this house belonging to me that I belong to it.

For Cee’s FOTD

      You and I have as many new favorites as a kid in an ice cream parlor. (Or us in an ice cream parlor.) And I don’t know how that “orange” got in there. I definitely meant to type “red.” Changed now.
