Rose of Sharon

Morning (click images for larger view)

About six months ago I acquired some cuttings from my parents neighbours Rose of Sharon plant.  I have always admired this plant.  I love how the flowers look like roses and change from the crisp white of a morning to a deep pink of the afternoon.  I discovered that this plant is a type of hibiscus and does go by many other names.


Pretty in pink

I couldn't leave out this crepe ginger that came up by itself and attracts the beautiful honey eaters.

I get to see this garden through the window when I sit to craft. :-)

Have a great weekend everyone.
