Flowers

Sometime in December we were doing some major landscaping in the front of our house.  Actually, all year we were working on landscaping, but in December we tackled the pretty flower bushes in front.  I think they are hibiscus, but I never really researched it.

The two bushes had a ton of pretty pink flowers, but they were completely blocking off the front walkway.  To fix the problem (for now) we clear cut them to almost nothing.  Since moving into a home in Houston, I have learned a lot about landscaping.  In this region, nothing seems to die if it is well established.  The backyard bushes we chopped up in the fall are now flowering already!  Odd to say the least, but I am sure I'll get used to it eventually.


Saved a few flowers.

Same bouquet, but with more direct natural light.

Front gate.  See that stump in the top left corner?  That is what is what was left.

Photo from Sunday.  They prevail!!!  Who is surprised?
