    Yours are beautiful! Mine looked like your pink ones and I had some reds. They're gone. Love to look at everyone's gardens so different and beautiful.

    How do your hibiscuses survive the winter???? I live in SoCal and one harsh winter and all mine died.
    Dream as if you'll live forever. Live as if you'll die today.

    Some people are like Slinkies - not really good for anything, but you still can't help but chuckle when you see one tumble down the stairs.

    Nutmeg ... Oh so pretty, for all!

    Your hibiscus are just ahead of mine .... mine should bloom mid to late August.
    Though my asiatic lilies are pretty much done. Daylilies are still blooming.
    And the Oriental Lily is about six feet tall, with seven blooms ... all but one are open.


    KimKanKwilt ... I have the perennial hibiscus too and they get no extra TLC. Just prune the shoots back in the fall and they start growing again in the spring. They've made it thru quite a few Ontario winters now ... even the wicked one we had this past year.

    thank you for showing us.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Nutmeg - very pretty! I think that your Asiatic Lilly might actually be an Oriental Lilly (judging by the flower color and the shape of the leaves). Is it scented? If so, it's an Oriental.

    KimKanQuilt - as QuiltE said, there is a tropical Hibiscus and a perennial Hibiscus. Many of the perennial Hibiscus are hardy all the way up to USDA zone 4. Perhaps you have a colder variety that is not getting the necessary cold/dormant period it requires, or you have a tropical variety that is not enjoying the winters (even in SoCal).
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    Giant hibiscus always make me think of crepe paper flowers we used to make in school or clubs. Pretty!

    All I do is cut them down. We had plenty of snow cover this year which will help protect. All my flowrs are just so beautiful this year. It has been a good year.

    What beautiful Hibiscus and the lilies are especially gorgeous and I bet the perfume is really overcoming. They are one of my favourite flowers for having in the house.

    I am in Indiana and my hibiscus is just starting to bloom. They just take care of themselves other than pruning after they bloom. I have a red and a pink one and mine survived the harsh winter we had last year.
    Your flowers are just gorgeous. I loved the pink lacy lilies I love flowers.
