I was so happy on Saturday as my beloved Hibiscus gave me a bloom after I'd repotted it and severely pruned it. I admit, I left one stem uncut and this is the one which flowered. I used my iPhone on all the photos in this post. I'm very pleased with the results from my iPhone 7 plus. Look at this amazing bloom! See the fuzzy end of the stamen? A truer red cannot be found.
I sidled behind the dining table to get up close and personal with this flower for it's photo shoot. :-) It's aiming it's face at the sunshine and light through the window.
A side view to show the long and amazing stamen of the flower.
As you can see I pruned it a lot.
It's exciting to see the new growth coming below all the cuts.
We had a nice easygoing weekend. I had subscribed to Victoria magazine after not getting it for years and I was pleased to see how many interesting articles and photos in this issue. Here is a wool, yarn and woven goods mill in New England.
The cover is beautiful with a lovely bouquet in a hollowed out pumpkin.
They also visited a farm store in Washington State that looked amazing.
The autumnal photos were stunning.
Another article with a beautiful barn, horses and an outdoor table all set for a dinner. I couldn't help but think the barn would have been much prettier in "barn" red with white trim. :-)
Another of the magazines I subscribe to.. the cover thrilled all of us being VW bus lovers. My son even enjoyed reading through this issue having just visited Hawaii for 10 days. I'm still at the beginning of reading this.. I'm looking forward to more photos of a Christmas in Hawaii.
When clearing the TV cabinet for the changing of the old TV to the new one.. I put my collection of crocheted rocks I did on the dining table. I noticed that the boys had stacked them up.. so I decided to see if I could get the smallest one to stay long enough for a photo.. lol. Success!
I finished the body of the baby blanket this weekend and now will do a border edging in blue as the baby is to be a boy. I'll get some photos when that is done. I am off to swim soon.. the morning began grey and rainy and now it's kind of sunny.. I hope it stays that way for my swim!! Have a great week. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
