The Changing Seasons – June

The Changing Seasons is a monthly challenge hosted by Cardinal Guzman. The rules are simple. Choose an area and every month take pictures of that area.

I chose my flowerbeds. Starting in January they were quite barren. Six months into the year and they are busting with blooms!

I have 2 new additions this month. The first is a little Bald Cypress. We found it on sale at Walmart for $5.00! And the little guy is quite healthy.

The second is a Hardy Hibiscus. I have killed many hibiscus. Each year I swear I’ll get it inside before the first freeze and every year I fail. But Tina found me this Hardy Hibiscus. She was told it should survive a Texas winter….lets hope for the best!

In case you question the chicken wire around the plants….remember I have a Labrador Retriever named Sugar!!

    Beautiful flowers! Nice selection you have there 😃
    I love Hibiscus. We have a couple of different varieties that work up here at the north pole (giggle)
    Hibiscus moscheutos, which have dinner plate sized blooms. Actually native here! They grow like a perennial, dieing back in winter. We also have hibiscus syringa or Rose of Sharon. These are woody shrubs and bloom regular sized blooms (4 ish inches). I think you may have a dinner plate one there… can’t wait to see it!
