OH MY GOSH YOU GUYS!!! Emily’s hibiscus is blooming and it is gorgeous! The picture does not do it justice.
I’d gone out to check on it this morning after breakfast and the bloom was maybe 1/4 open. I wish I’d taken a picture of it this morning, but I didn’t have my phone with me. I figured I’d show Emily when she got home from school. I went back outside at lunch and the bloom was open and it’s huge and so colorful.
There are no less than 17 other buds on the bush right now, including the one in my picture below that will be open before you know it.
