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!

I love seeing your Harold’s finds as I’m a big fan of their stuff and I’d be the one that pays full price. If you ever get tired of those skirts…I’m a size 6!!! hee-hee

Great finds, as usual ! I love that green tray but have no place for it either unfortunately.
Your flowers are beautiful.
Love your little store! I keep checking back for stuff…as soon as we find a house to buy I’ll start stocking up!! But I don’t have a clue as to how I will decorate if I don’t have a house!! =) All in God’s time……I’m trusting Him!! Loved all your neat finds! Have a great week!
Your hibiscus are beautiful! And the trays are great too!! You always find such wonderful things.

Great looking trays! I always forget that some hibiscus can be grown where it get so cold. What beautiful blooms!
Susie Q says
That skirt is too cute!! You lucky lady!
That try is so pretty and your flowers are gorgeous!
Have a sweet week dear Rhoda…I am going to do the lamp post *hee hee* this week! Thanks for allowing me to be such a copy cat!
I LOVE the hibiscus…what a gorgeous color!
I don’t blame you for keeping the black tray. Very nice.
Your hibiscus are beautiful! My little nephew in Florida called them ‘hot biscuit’.
I have an affinity for tole trays and have several….they never go out of style…..like your skirt also…Betty

Your flowers are beautiful!
I love coming by your blogs on Mondays to see if you went yard-saling and to see what you’ve found! You always find the best things!
Ooh! Great finds!!! Your Hibiscus are gorgeous!!! I can’t believe how big they are. You obviously have a green thumb. Beautiful!
Cheryl Wray says
Love the trays and the skirt. It totally looks like you! So stylish!
And your hibiscus are gorgeous!!!
Beautiful flowers, Rhoda. Mine just aren’t doing well this year so I guess I’ll have to just look at yours….lol.
I love the green tray! I never find very much when I’m out bargain hunting. I think I need to move to the South! But then I’d have to leave the mountains and I don’t think I can do that….lol. I’ll check out your ebay site….what’s your “handle”????
the feathered nest says
I think your thumbs pretty green too LOL! Your hibiscus are just gorgeous – they’re so big! It’s nice to get some rain isn’t it, but it’s still not enough. I’ve had a couple of planters just die on me this year. I’ve replanted one twice already.
Love the tole trays that you found and the skirt is cute!
Southern Heart says
Wow….your garden looks beautiful! You are doing really well even with the drought we’ve been having. And, I love your skirt! You are going to look adorable in it.
Great finds at your sales! I can’t believe the deals on those toleware trays. I went to an estate sale about 2 weeks ago where they were asking *more* than they go for on eBay—at an estate sale! I’m so glad that you found those!
Trudi M says
Love your hibiscus and I want to shop where you do. We’re having no rain in Norther In too. It’s a never ending story to water the flowers.
Those hibiscus are divine…we do need rain, don’t we. Your finds are lovely, and it sounds like you had a great weekend. Enjoy your week!
