I have been working in the yard the last few days and just this morning I noticed how full the begonia plant was (top photo) the flowers are really blooming  this year , I decided to go ahead and cut some to root , these begonias always come back out so good .I wanted to root some for the pastors wife and daughter,so I have extras for them and also enough for 2 hanging pots for my garden area as well .
Working in the yard sure does take time and is starting to look good out there ,I notice too that some of my Hibiscus are  coming back and the one shown was another favorite .
My vegetable garden is doing really good too, I cannot belive all the blooms on the squash plants ,so far I have picked about 8 and there are 2 plants with at least 6 squash on them , Tomatoes are doing good as well as the banana peppers , onions  seem to be really slow .I have enough squash  to cook for supper tonight  , love them smother fried with onions !


  1. That is the MOST BEAUTIFUL Rose of Sharon I've ever seen!! My mother loves them and has a number in her garden. What variety is it? Lovely, lovely color!

  2. Hi Linda , I am sorry to say I do not have a Rose Of Sharon on this post , the top is in the begonia family , I did not think to take a picture of the leaves too, the bottom picture is a Hisbicus I brought at a plant shop last summer and I do not know the name for that one, I thought I lost it during the winter, but I think it is coming back ,I posted about it because I just noticed the leaves coming out this week.But not sure it is the same one .I sure hope it is ,I love the colors too .Thanks for commenting
