In my corner of the world winter snow has already covered the ground a couple of times and more is expected this week. The flowers in my yard are long gone until Spring again awakens the land and they sprout forth from the earth once again in their beauty. So, what to do for Today's Flowers. I had family all week for the Thanksgiving holidays and haven't had a chance to scout for other flower alternatives. This hibiscus is one from my archives. I took this at my Mom's house in September. It was a surprise to her. It sprang up almost in the middle of a boxwood.
You can see the petal damage from not having enough room to really spread out. We thought it was still quite beautiful. Come spring the boxwood will be cut back to allow the hibiscus to grow.
