For the Love of the Rose of Sharon
When Dearest Jim bought this house for me, it had an old Rose of Sharon bush next to the patio. We tried to kill it many times...chopped it down, ran over it with the lawn mower. Eventually we gave up and now it is taller than me and loaded with the most beautiful purple blooms. This remarkable plant thrives in heat, humidity, drought and poor soil.
I have included a photo of my shih-tzu Tibadeaux just because he is so darn cute
