My pereinnial Hibiscus are just beginning to bloom now. Although they bloom on and off through the fall, they are most prolific from late July to late August. For those 4 weeks I pretty much get non stop blooms. I have 7 Hibiscus right now, whites above (the first blooms to open) 2 different shades of pink and also a red.
I painted this watercolor 2 years ago...big surprise, it's called Pink Hibiscus. It was a lot of fun to do and they really and truly are some of my favorite summer flowers.
My Hibiscus are the tall plants in the very back of the garden. Only a few weeks ago, they were as tall as the lilies in front of them, but now, they have gotten way taller and will be bursting open any time now. The white blooms from above are on the smaller Hibiscus to the extreme most left and are only visible from the side. I'll also try to take a photo of the 7 of them when they are really in full bloom because they are quite a wonderful sight to see.
I shipped off a cat portrait mailbox this week, today actually and I hope the person who ordered it will really enjoy it. These mailboxes always cause me a bit of stress as I always worry about the customer and owner of the animals, liking the representation I've done. I'm actually quite relieved when they are finished and shipped out.
