At the end of summer, one of my favorite flowers blooms. Hardy Hibiscus. I have one down in the backyard its huge. It's about 5 feet tall and gorgeous. I didn't water it for about 2 days and all the flowers fell off. I was absolutely devastated.
But, I have one planted in the front yard that is much smaller and has never bloomed, until now.
It was incredible. It looked like a fake in my front yard because the bloom was so huge, it didn't look like it went with the small plant. I mean, this bloom was the size of a dinner plate.
I take too many pictures of my plants than I would like to admit, but it does remind me of my Grandma Parmele so that's ok. But these were just to pretty to not share!

Hey Em, it was great having Wyatt and yourself around for Taryn's birthday. Sorry we haven't had a whole lot of extra time to get together since we've been back. I really don't have much of a life right now while I've got my nose in the books unfortunately, unless you count occasional trips to the library a highlight.

Carolyn has taken a part time job just to get us through the new year before I start the old job search again. We'd love to get together with you guys soon. Shoot us an e-mail if there are any particular days of the week that work best for you guys and maybe we can plan a day to get together sometime soon.

Nice pics by the way. Your photography skills rock... one of these days we'll have to get some serious pointers. Hope you're doing well. ~Davo~
