I love taking photos of our 17 Rose of Sharon Bushes around our yard. They are especially gorgeous this year with all the rain and then the heat. They are surviving better than I am. I feel like I am melting. It’s too hot to stay outside long. I spend most of my time in the AC. Ahhh!
Of course, I did go out today to snap these photos for your pleasure. I hope they bring some joy into your life. They do give me plenty each time I look at them.
These bushes attract all kinds of insects and even a few butterflies have been spotted nearby. The pollinators are responsible for keeping these flowers so beautiful and varying the colors from bush to bush.
I never tire of gazing at the flowers because their life is so fleeting and seasonal. Summer flies by and before we know the cooler temperatures will be here. So we must enjoy what is here now while we can.
May you have beautiful flowers and weather wherever you live. Stay safe and well and enjoy every day as if it were your last.

We just discovered Rose of Sharon bushes are very popular around here and will be putting some in next year, Janice. But we need to get some trees in for at least a little shade!
You will love them. They are quite hardy and bloom profusely. But don’t give shade. You need some elm, maple, ash or whatever other tree is in your area. hugs xx
Thanks, dear! We are going to plant as big a maple tree as we can afford in our back yard this fall and another in the side yard – with permission from the HOA of course.
