Welcome reader to my blog - a mixture of this and that. Now that we are living in a retirement community in downtown Columbia, MD my personal gardening activities are somewhat curtailed. I still enjoy visiting gardens, reading, watching wildlife on my walks, traveling, and occasional food commentary. Please leave a comment if you feel inspired to do so. I read every one of them.

Hello Hibiscus!


First blooms opened today for 2015.
These are as big as dinner plates and such a lovely shade.



The butterflies are liking the butterfly bush now that it's in bloom as well.


These were taken in a brief sunny moment.  Mostly we have had cloudy skies and rain.

They look fabulous and such enormous blooms. You must have such green fingers.
