Ray of sunshine

Sunshine peeking over the fence.  I call it swamp hibiscus.  Don't know the botanical name.   It is just a pretty and large flower to greet first thing in the morning.

Sadly the beetles like them too.   I have to use some 7 dust to be able to see it bloom.

                               A squash seed I put in this pot and so far a pretty plant with

Potted tomato plant, so far so good


  1. Hi Betsy. What a pretty bloom, I like the name you gave it. All your seedlings are prospering and looking good. I left you a comment about not being able to find your blog but now I see I had forgotten that I get it in my in-mail box so all is good. It is so hot here I think it has addled my brain..Happy Wednesday..Judy

  2. Beautiful blooms, Betsy!! Thanks so much for visiting!!


  3. Your garden is growing nicely, Betsy. Beautiful Hibiscus flower! I just love fresh summer squash and tomatoes from the garden -- they're just hard to beat. :)

    Have a great week!
