Rose of Sharon are Gorgeous!

I look forward each year to the blooming of our 17 Rose of Sharon bushes all around our house. They are absolutely the most beautiful sight each year. Many of our neighbors walk by to gaze at them especially when they are in full bloom. They are getting there with their blossoms.

Here are some recent photos of them in all their glory.

Rose of Sharon 10 bushes blooming more now. They reach up to and above the windows. We can see them flowers from inside.

These photos are the many flowers that are blooming now in different shades of purple/pink and white. The birds, bees, butterflies and dragonflies are loving these blossoms.

I recently shared our beautiful hydrangea bush with eight flowers. It was the most flowers we have ever had on one plant. Unfortunately the deer developed a liking to them and here is what the bush looks like now! Sigh! YIKES!

Hydrangea with 7 blossoms
After deer ate most of the flowers! Sigh!

I was shocked to see it like this. I had come out a few days after taking the first photo above and cried out for John to come see it. I guess the deer took a liking to the taste of these beautiful flowers! I was so crushed! I’ll have to wait until next year now to enjoy them! Sigh!

Here is our hibiscus plant with two flowers. They are a lovely color of salmon. Bugs are doing a job on it laying their eggs (white fluffy things). I tried to water it the other day and I was engulfed with these white things all over me! Yuck! I did a little dance around and waved my arms to get them off of me. I took a shower just in case there were any still there! Haha!

Bugs are loving my rose bushes too! We have had to spray them heavily to protect them. One plant I don’t want to share the photo of is completely devastated, hardly any leaves and no flowers! Sigh!

I will share some more of the Rose of Sharon soon. They are not through with flowering yet. They sometimes have so many flowers on their stems that they lean over because of the weight of them. So gorgeous!

Thank you for stopping by to read this post. I hope you will come back again soon. You are always welcome. Keep reading and I will keep writing. Take care.

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