Flower Connection

 


What flower connection will you make today? To set the pace, here's my Tuesday flower choice. It’s the Hibiscus accompanied by a Gladys Taber quote. “Happiness of heart can never be measured out and bundled up, it's intangible. We keep running after it, grasping for it, and the heat of our running so seldom brings it closer. But now and then there may be a moment. We look at something and know it is good and beautiful. Those moments are happiness.”

The Hibiscus certainly warrants a moment in the flower connection if you want a big splash. Plus one of its features is its magnetic qualities for butterflies and hummingbirds. It’s a perfect Tuesday reminder to ‘look at something and know it is good and beautiful.’ Like this stunning Hibiscus showing off in its moment of morning happiness. 

In case you need two worthwhile links on Hibiscus varieties and care, I recommend these below. If you want to dabble with Hibiscus, this is a good place to start. There’s so much to know about this plant and it’s one we haven’t used in planting plans or even our own research garden. Sometimes I fear testing plant material because, like growing grapes, it can turn into an obsession or one more hobby run amuck. So here’s a shout out to the Hibiscus lovers. Share your thoughts and plant experiences, whether it’s the tropical or the hardy varieties; we’d love to hear. Otherwise, if you’re like me, you can just enjoy the one blossoming in someone else’s landscape.
