The perennial hibiscus bush we planted last year has begun blooming and is putting on quite a show. When we saw this plant at a local nursery, we had to have it because of the light blush color and the dark pink center. The blooms are 8 to 10 inches in size and only last one day. However, the plant blooms daily during the hot summer months.
Our magnolia tree is blooming also. I am from Mississippi which is known as the Magnolia state. The magnolia is our state flower and state tree. The flowers have a spectacular sweet fragrance that is hard for me to describe. I often use the leaves of the magnolia in arrangements.
Thank you for dropping by today.
I am heading over to the Outdoor Wednesday party at
