That's what I would call it Lovey dubby Lovey dubby

I like all plants in the hibiscus family which I think include Rose of Sharon, Mallow, etc.

They touch my heart, just like your words always do. Smiling

Please add me to your seed list if you ever have extra. Thumbs up

Ya gotta be more specific, Vic!

Ya gotta say: 'I'd like seeds from Ninna's hibiscus . . .

Or seeds from Gramma's . . .

Or seeds from somebody's Rose of Sharon . . .

I'll tell you, at the end of our long hot dry July and August, I'm so glad to have these blooms!

I'm sorry Sharon *Blush*

I would love the seeds from the top two photos. I have several of the bottom two photo's.

I have Clara Curtis mum if you would like it. It looks and blooms more like a daisy. It's not mum looking at all. It blooms peach colored in my soil.

Cool hibiscus! Great writing about it, too...Granny Ninna would be proud of ya.
(I think you should put one of those flowers behind your ear and add it to your avatar pic!) :>)

And if Vic gets some seeds she should do the same next year. And if I get some seeds I'll join in!

Best to All!

Cool idea, Shoe!! But I'll have to take the ladder out there to reach the bloom for behind my ear and that means going to the garage to get the ladder and it's so hot right now is it ok if I wait till it cools down and besides I don't have a soul here to take a picture so my life is a bit complicated at the moment but I'll keep it in mind, OK??

(Whew. Explanations always zap the energy right outta me. Along with all the heat.)

But I did catch the seed thing. You betcha! Big Grin
