I went out to the gardens to pick tomatoes and was waylaid by the flowers and bugs. I have waited three years to see this perennial hibiscus bloom. I winter sowed some seeds from a plant at my Dad's house. He was so thrilled when he grew his. I am thrilled to have one from his plant. My tribute plant to him. The yellow sedum is blomming and these little Phaon Crescentbutterflies just cover it in August. Marigolds attract all sorts of garden helpers.
