This is the first year we've had a hibiscus. Last night when I watered it was all closed up, and behold! Sometime between 9 p.m. and 6 a.m. two gorgeous blossoms unfolded from a tight little bud. It would be fun to see it happen.

The mailbox revisited. If I were any good at links I would show you the tulips of spring back in an April post.
At first I didn't really like those bobbley looking alum - it's our first year for them, too. I've come to like them even though they smell like onions.
This coleus is from a cutting Larry took last summer. He kept it going all winter, and planted it in the spring. When it was in full glory last summer Daniel was just relearning how to walk with his new hip hardware, courtesy of the orthopedic surgeon. That story is in an earlier post as well, ( A Story Retold) and we are ever so thankful he can walk again. We are having a much better summer this year!
