Awesome! That bloom is huge. You are a wonderful gardener. Beautiful!

I love it...I never realized they get this big of a bloom. WoW. My hubby and I were in the U.P. yesterday for a day trip. He loves pasties and likes to stop at Suzy's just past the bridge. Do you know of any other places that sell good pasties?

Hi Cher,

Thanks for your visit to my blog! Next time I'll be sure to have a BIG pocket for you to ride in when I'm painting in Beatrix Potter's garden.


All joys to you,

Hibiscus is one of my favourite collection of flowers. Composite in many ways.
