2011 .. just visiting

- since Gracie, the Seminole pink Hibiscus is blooming almost every day, I'll be out taking her photo-of-the-day - she has grown to just below the kitchen window sill and last year I had to stand on tip-toe to see her - am I partial to her ? - well, guess you could say that - if she blooms, I shall shoot !!

Ms Crape Myrtle ..

after visiting the Floridata website to find the variety of this bloomer .. discovered that I've spelled her name wrong ! still don't know which variety .. but did find this interesting note on the site: it was posted below a photo that you can imagine how it was 'pruned/hacked' .. " This crape myrtle tree is the victim of pruning abuse. Do not do this because it looks stupid and causes the crape to cry. If you want a three foot high bush, plant a bush like Indian hawthorn, azalea, or some other plant that WANTS to be a low growing shrub. Don't be a control freak and try to hack plants into something they are not. " after laughing like a nut, managed to copy it for your enjoyment!
