Yesterday I had my first Texas Star hibiscus blossom for the summer, which I thought was fitting, as it was Josey's 8-month birthday. My altheas have really been beautiful - see photo - I planted lots of them when Linda Carpenter was moving and gave them to me. I especially love them because they give me beauty when I look outside my bathroom window each morning this time of year. I also love mimosas - only one is big enough to be pretty yet, but it smells even better than it looks. I also treasure my old-fashioned petunias, and the ice plant, which thrives so. I really love plants that are easy yet lovely. I'm struggling to keep grass alive.
