Rose of Sharon/ Today's Flowers

A few years ago, a friend gave me a rose of Sharon slip and now this lovely shrub towers above...oops! Am I supposed to admit my garden has weeds? ;-)

Truth be told, the bed this shrub is in is fairly weed free. But it does tower above another bed that's begging me to spend some time in it. (I really wish most days had more than 24 hours!)
And here's the underside of another blossom, which I think is pretty too.

A flower with my name!! When I was young and living in Illinois, we had one of these in our yard. I had forgotten how beautiful they are.

Beautiful Rose of Sharon. We had one when I was little, and for some reason I didn't like it. Now I love these shrubs. Wonderful picture.

And the BBQ Clearance cracks me up!
