I think I mentioned how pretty my hibiscus are every year and this year is no exception! They are really bustin’ out right now & we just had a pretty good rain one day this week, so they are loving the water. These were only planted a year ago in February & they bloomed & bloomed last year & are even bigger this year.
This is the whole bed…there’s a Limelight hydrangea in the middle of the 2 hibiscus (the hibiscus on the right gets less sun, so is smaller). I can’t wait for them all to be in bloom at the same time. That’s a real treat.
Here’s an update on one of my containers. It’s really getting hard to get these things watered every day, with this dang drought we’re having, but I’m trying.
My basket is doing OK, not great.
Yardsale Finds: I know you all won’t be too surprised to find out that I’ve found some treasures to keep for myself & I hope you all are enjoying the items I’ve put in my shop. I just had to share a couple of things that I found in the last 2 weeks. I hit a wonderful estate sale on Friday & really lucked out on picking up 2 tole trays. There was a line to get in & everyone made a beeline inside the house when the doors opened in the garage, but I decided to browse out there first & these 2 tole trays were waiting for me. I paid $8.00 for the black one & will be keeping it. I’ve only found one other tole tray while yardsaling, so I figured I was due for another one. This one is a beauty, even if some of the black is a little scratched around the edges…it’s gorgeous!
This large green one was priced at $20. I’m putting this one on Ebay in case anyone is interested. It’s large & really pretty. Here’s a closeup of the floral on that one. I don’t have a place to put this one or I would keep it too. I have an affinity for the black ones!
