Bernard, I believe I saw that building while visiting. Beautiful. I think it would sell when the price becomes more reasonable. Who so earning the money when it does?

(And very different from the hibiscus we grow out here)

Likely cultivars of the local native swamp rosemallow Hibiscus moscheutos, an herbaceous perennial. In the wild it's usually white with a maroon eye. I know of several wild stands in my area, one of which I have been passing every day on my way to the train station. It's in a ditch next to the railroad embankment.

Garden cultivars are frequently solid colors with enormous flowers, some over a foot in diameter! But, they are quite a bit more flattened than the flowers of the woody shrub Hibiscus rosa-sinensis, the tropical Chinese rose mallow, whose flowers are more trumpet-shaped. People in snow country grow those, too, as potted summer "annuals" that some bring indoors to overwinter.

Ah, from swamp mallows, huh? No wonder they didnt like my dry sandy soil! Had never looked up the requirements (and I usually do, but that is now, and then, was then)

Thanks for the info.

Today I saw: This picture!



In a Thrift Store for $5. Pretty cool - it's made with seeds glued to canvas then painted. Of course I bought it, even though it's going to have to hang in the shop as it's not the sort of thing milady likes to see in the house.

On the back it says "Made in Taiwan - Republic of China - 1998" and I suspect it is the sort of thing you might find set out for tourists to buy.

It also has this writing on it. Ax or someone else - can you translate?

At our friends' lake house in Michigan - no internet, and spotty cell service...

No wind for the sailboats, but there was hiking, swimming and plenty of other water toys!

I do not believe I would have had the discipline to freeze them. No, I'm quite sure I would have eaten them. All.

HA!
I have had my nibbles for the past few days.
Lots more coming.

I don't ever remember them producing this late when I had my old patch. I had to get rid of that patch but saved some, from which the new patch has grown (for 2 yrs). Darn things are outgrowing that one, so will have to do some deleting fall/spring. Want some young starts from this year? Plant in sun and compost.
