Saturday my husband took me out to get my Mother's Day gift. I had to go with him, because he wanted to get me some plants and he wanted me to pick them out. He had seen some hibiscus at Home Depot, but wasn't sure what size and color I wanted.
We went to the Home Depot closest to the house, but their plants looked as though no one had been taking care of them. Which is surprising, because usually their plants are very nice. I hated to drive all the way out to the the other store, but I also didn't want to settle for some sickly plants that I was going to have to nurse back to health.
I was so glad we decided to go to the other store! We found a couple of hibiscus that were perfect: lush, green leaves and lots of buds. We also found a hybrid rose tree that is full of buds. Be ready for lots of pictures as soon as they bloom.
These, and the picture from the previous post, are my yellow roses. I only had five roses bloom this year and they bloomed one at a time. These are pictures of the last to bloom. There would have been six roses, but the rabbits ate one before it had a chance.
