The Cool House: Maui

Maui


I try not to play favorites with my plants but this Hibiscus and its two siblings have bloomed triumphantly since I bought them home a couple of weeks ago. Pretty pink flowers with a fuchsia center, that arresting yellow stamen and dark glossy leaves, how could I not love them? And the name of the variety is Maui, isn't that perfect? It's the nearest I'll get to Hawaii this summer so it's a bonus.

While your photos of flowers are absolutely amazingly gorgeous (sp?), I miss reading about the trials and tribulations of The Guy.

He will be back - starring in a saga about a towel rail - stay tuned......
