|Another variety of hibiscus|
The beauty of this $1 hibiscus stunned me. My price--cheap. This almost-free plant bloomed for the first time since I got it two weeks ago. The bloom is just as the woman described it. It is pink with darker pink in the center. It's my new favorite. Plus, the bloom is about 8" across.
If I could afford to go to a movie, I would. Instead, I will just sit here and rhapsodize aloud/in type about this beauty that bloomed this afternoon for the first time at my house.
This plant almost got to stay at the nursery. It looks like something sat on it. The main two branches stick out to one side, making it wider than it is tall. The woman who helped me by moving the plants so I could see them and loaded on a cart and into the car just insisted that I should get this one.
She described it and said I could propagate more from this mangled plant. For a dollar, why not? You can see the top six inches is new growth. And, my chicken keeps falling over!
Okay, there is obviously nothing on my mind tonight.
Just now, at 6:50 and five minutes from total darkness, Thelma was making a racket, sounding like an egg song. I rushed out. She jumped from the table and rushed to the fence. Patsy Cline came from the nest box. Both were dying to get out, trying to force the gate open with their thoughts and anxious little bodies.
I could see nothing. Maybe a raccoon that I heard earlier was out there. They are safe.
So, I will just wash dishes, maybe. It is such a blah Saturday night here, actually like most my nights...lol.
It is sort of late for "first" blossoms. Have you had any late surprises flower-wise?
