Rose of Sharon

I am continually thankful for the way seasons work. As time progresses through the year, our mother earth blesses us with changes in the landscape we live in. I am so amazed by the cycle of plant life and how there is always something new coming or going. Today I was blessed by the blooms of the Rose of Sharon bush outside my window. It is a giant bush and reminds me of my grandmother. As long as I've been familiar with this particular plant, my family has called it the Althea bush. Simply beautiful!


  1. the simple things are the beautiful things, so true. really like the monochrome photo among the colors.

  2. The one at the farm is the seedless variety that Uncle Sam gave to the folks one year. Mine are the darned seed variety and if you don't cut off the seed pods at the end of the summer, you will be blessed with millions of them. But I still love them, cause they will bloom all summer as long as it is hot. They do attract hummingbirds and also bees,,,so be careful around it. aunt carol (csl)
