Meet the Twisted ‘Biscus, named by the husband and I for it’s twisted trunk and, of course, hibiscus flowers.  We are not stellar at growing things, but we are really giving it a go this year.  Last weekend we planted two of these plants, one on each side of the garage.  So far so good, as each of them have two blooms so far.  It will be exciting to see how they grow.

***Thanks to all of you who participated in my contest, I was overwhelmed and my Amazon Wishlist is now much longer!  I will be announcing the winner tomorrow!  You still have time to enter in the comments below.

  1. Ooh, I love hibiscus(es?)! Yours are very pretty. Around here, even though we’re zone 7, we have to pot them and bring them inside for the winter, which so far has been too daunting for me to try. But they really are beautiful so I know it’s worth it.

  3. I know I missed the contest, but I have a few suggestions… I just finished “The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time” and it’s a fun, quick, easy read. One of my all time favorites is Wally Lamb’s “I Know This Much is True.” His book “She’s Come Undone” is really good, too. It’s written in first person in a female voice — I read almost the entire book before I realized it was written by a man! Are you going to write up a little book report for us when you’re done reading? You’re probably sick of writing, huh? šŸ™‚ Never mind the book report, just let us know what you read and if you liked it!
