The pollinators love this place! I have so many different butterflies, bees, hummingbirds and goldfinches to watch out our big front window — a living tapestry.

    The hibiscus are gorgeous! They are a favorite of Jason’s, so I am going to get some of those for our garden 🙂

    • Thank you, Linette! I planted three of those dinner plate hibiscus in your and Sarah’s yards, but I guess they didn’t make it. They need to be babied the first year (which is when we moved), but then they’re quite hardy! I was so happy to find them here as a replacement! Enjoy the selection process. There are some real beauties! ❤

        Aw, I will look for them… perhaps they just didn’t bloom because of the heat and dryness. I am not super familiar with what the foliage looks like, so I will look that up. Thanks!

        • The foliage kind of looks like maple leaves when it first comes up. They might not have taken root. You really do need to baby them the first year, and we discovered here that it’s wise to mark them off like the woman who planted them did. Otherwise we would have either mown over them, or I would have weeded them out as a volunteer maple where I didn’t want one.

  2. What beauty! What life force! Thank you for sharing these. If ever you catch a photo of some yellow finches in your yard or garden, I’d love to see one.

    • Thank you, Sky. Will do. They usually hang out on the sunflowers when I’m doing sessions, so I can’t just run out with the camera. Sometimes they flutter in front of the window, though, so maybe I can snap one then. 🙂
