Rose of Sharon

My three year old Rose of Sharon is in full bloom - glorious color!

Yesterday was a super busy day starting early with an appointment to get an estimate to pave the driveway, then back to the studio for more organizing. Aaron came early to cut and hang two shelves for me and I spent the rest of the morning and early afternoon loading shelves and organizing and sharpening more tools. I think one more day should finish this project. I would have finished it yesterday but had to stop at 3 o'clock and get to the dentist, then had dinner out at the local buffet.

This morning I'm heading out to buy more clay to feed the hungry pug mill, do a bit of food shopping (hoping Earth Fare has some Meyer lemons for tomorrow nights margarita madness, porch sitting - a weekly ritual with our friends Laura and Jim), and if the rain isn't bad and we can find a parking space, we'll have lunch at the Indian restaurant. They have a big, inexpensive, lunch buffet and their food is excellent.

  2. that flower is beautiful. i've never seen any flower like that before. My ex jsut gave me spider plant baby and a wandering jew.

  3. Rose of Sharon is a pretty tall, almost tree like shrub, when mature; and it comes in more than one color choice. I tend to love the pinks and lavender tones; and this one is particularly vivid, and beautiful.
