Rose of Sharon


Our Rose of Sharon (Hibiscus sryiacus) in bloom.  I trimmed it back so far last year and it is a lot taller than I am yet again!  It has a lot of amazing flowers though – and we are keeping the honey bees in business (between this and the Hydrangea and Thistle – yet to be shown).


Gay and I had an amazing time at the Benmiller Inn near Goderich, Ontario. 

This picture is from the balcony of our room overlooking “the lower pond.”  The reflections of the trees made for a good picture and a chance to relax and reflect with a good book. (Actually, it wasn’t the greatest book – but I finished it that morning, so all good in the end!)

To all my learners – Don’t forget to engage with the natural beauty and learning opportunities around you.  (And you can still read a book!)
