More Flowers Blooming to share!

With 17 Rose of Sharon bushes around our yard it is quite beautiful to see. I wanted to share more of them with you as they continue to bloom. They lift my spirits and warm my heart each day I look at them and see more flowers popping out.

I stepped out into my yard recently and nearly was bombarded by many bees as they flew in and around the bushes. I had to step back a little to get out of their way. I know they were not interested in me but I was a little anxious just the same. I managed to snap some photos of bees inside the flowers. It was incredible. See for yourself below!

Soon there will be butterflies and dragonflies attracted to these bushes. I love watching them in action. If I’m lucky I may catch a few of them one day in photos.

The mother bush above used to have pinkish/purple flowers but is now all white. Part of the bush died a few years ago and was pulled out leaving this one with all white blooms. I’ve noticed that some of the other transplants have begun to have dual colors too. They can change with each year too because of the pollinating of the bees and birds who spread the pollen from plant to plant thus creating new flowers. They are breathtakingly beautiful! People driving by stop to admire them but only see five on one side of the house facing the street and two bushes in front. The other ten bushes are on the other side of the house away from the street.

I will be taking more photos as they are in full bloom soon. They will take your breath away, I am sure! I hope you have enjoyed looking at my photos which are copyrighted under the blog. Watch for more coming soon.

Thank you for stopping by to read this post. Come back again any time. You are always welcome. Take care.

Blessings & Hugs! Stay Safe, Stay Well and God Bless!

  1. Plentiful and beautiful, Janice. I remember my parents had a tall bush like the purple one, but they called it a holly hawk. Probably just an unofficial regional name. Hugs on the wing.

  2. Breathtakingly beautiful ~ interesting to read ’bout the color change from pollination. I enjoyed the read and the photos.

    They are gorgeous and look a lot like the Hibiscus we have growing here in Spain.
