Something Sunnier

I don't have time to post or blogvisit but I hated that my last post was so dark. So here are a couple happier pix. I bought this hibiscus plant half dead at the grocery store for practically nothing not even knowing what color the flowers would be and look! A pretty dark peach with a pink center. It didn't really need much nursing, just some morning sun and water.
This one is for Hel, since she's experiencing winter on the other side of the equator . Wishing you a bit of summer!

I'm having so much fun with my nephews. I don't get to see them as often as I'd like to so we're really making the most of it. Oooh they wear me out! In a good way. More pictures later. Hope everyone is a having a beautiful weekend.

That is a rocking hibiscus.

I love hibiscus'! It's kind of sad that stores that shouldn't sell plants purchase them as loss leaders to bring people in to the store, and then can't take care of them properly. It makes me glad that grocery stores can't display a rack of kittens to sell. ;)

I've given up on hibiscus as we can only have them over the summer, and our summers have been so freaking hot lately that they end up looking anemic, at best.
Now I kind of with I had bought one...

I believe that I shall head for the beach.

Aaaah. I can feel the sun and salt on my skin, the sand between my toes, the hibiscus behind my ear and the sea everywhere.

Thank you.

In return once it is winter you can reclaim this "soft warm wolf stretching across your cold winter toes" voucher.
