Hobbling outside with the rubbish I found my Hibiscus flowering! I hadn't realised the buds were so close to opening – but then I haven't had much outside time in the last week.
Of course I had to hobble back inside and find my camera to record it – this plant could well be dead by next summer! I am carefully recording garden successes – mostly to prove to my mother that I can garden! She has always been able to create spectacular gardens and now that she has a computer I am quick to email her photos of anything I grow.
