Confederate Rose





I will have to look up the scientific name and let you know. These "roses" are part of the hybiscus/mallow family. The white bloom in the lose up was early this morning. The light pink was mid afternoon. It got progressivly darker towards evening. Tomorrow morning it will look like the one floating in the water. (whoops. It left out the picture of the one in the water.) They are amazing. We have this one bush, tree really, and Bill's mom has two.

I has a tatted snowflake to post, but the picture did not turn out. I will try again tomorrow.

I'm glad you like it Clyde. We were thrilled to find the blooms opening. You are welcome.
Thanks Madeline. I was so tickled!
Thanks Tatskool. You did notice I provided a link to the scientific name, right? I'm learning!
