I have been blessed!

Hibiscus is one of my favourite plants on earth and before we  moved to the house and I paid attention to the garden, I have been wondering how I will implement this gorgeous plant into my garden.

And then on the day I got the house keys, I was given one last tour of the garden and actually noticed the hibiscus, right in front of our front door! I was ecstatic.

A bonus is, that the lady that lived in the house before us was somewhat of a horticulturist and she 'bred' this hybrid herself. Makes me appreciate it just so much more.

Aren't they stunning?

They will need a lot of work though, I need to trim it regularly so that the dominant colour doesn't take over and I need to cover it in winter, or it will die! I can't have this beauty fade, not on my watch!
