Green Thumb Sunday

Out of all of the Rose of Sharon that I enjoy blooming in my small yard, this is my favorite. It is another of my volunteer bushes, and the color on it is so much fun. It really is hard to resist taking pictures of her. Of course the photos do nothing to do this flower justice. In real life, the candy cane like effect of the white and rose-red pink are more striking....but I think you get the idea from this shot, as you can see some of the color on the edges of each petal. Mother Nature is one pretty lady

Have a Happy Green Thumb Sunday!
