Hibiscus Blooms

I've had this pink hibiscus plant for three years now. In the cold of winter, it comes inside to stay in the study. But come the summer, the plant heads outside and usually grows thick and lush on a corner of the back deck. My only challenge is to ensure that this water-loving tropical plant gets enough water to keep the blooms coming all season long.

This summer, Mother Nature has handled the watering duties and I've seen the largest flowers yet on the plant. In the summer sun, with up to a half dozen of blossoms at a time, the plant looks downright blousy and gaudy.

It's a most happy development.

Note: I see that my blogger font troubles continue. Grrrrr. I'll get to work on this straight away, but I make no promises.
