While they were cleaning out a fence row, one fall day, they dug out three hibiscus roots and dropped them in our driveway while we were gone. The roots laid there a couple of days before we planted them and below you can see how beautiful they are.
These hibiscus are in my yard and are blooming right now. This is a view from my back porch, looking down the back side of the house. The flowers are also visible from the inside of the house.
While I was wandering around Alan & Lucille’s yard, admiring the flowers and taking some pictures, a butterfly decided to flitter in front of my camera. It seemed to sit there and want to pose for pictures. So, who am I to pass up a good opportunity to photograph a butterfly.
You just have to hang around the right kind of flowers, if you want to see butterflies….And next year, I’m growing some of these beautiful flowers in my yard!
