Rose of Sharon

6.16.2011

My Rose of Sharon bushes are starting to bloom. They are packed full of buds. I grabbed some shots of the one out front late in the afternoon when it was in the shade.







Still hundreds of buds just waiting to open up.

This bush along with the rest of my yard is very happy after getting some much needed rain last night.
So glad the Mr. and I got the yard cut before the storm blew in. We finished in the nick of time. I was doing it by myself, but had to get him to help when I saw the sky getting darker and darker. He rolled his eyes when I had to drag him away from working in his garage. Men!
I have to remind him that he is lucky I like to do the yard.

Hope you have a great day!

  4. I love the Rose of Sharon. Mine are just starting to bloom to. I had to spray them twice with “Seven” to keep the beetles off. Last year those darn bugs ate ALL the leaves off.

  6. Your rose bush is beautiful, Kim. We did the same thing yesterday. I love to cut the grass...provided it isn't 100 degrees. I prefer to use my push mower because it gives a prettier cut than our riding mower. My husband edges and blows off everthing and I cut. It's a great team effort! Also, threw on a little nitrogen before the rain hit to green up our poor grass. Have a good day!

  8. Gorgeous photos! I love Rose of Sharon--it reminds me of my childhood. We didn't have many crepe myrtles where I grew up, but there was Rose of Sharon everywhere. And I always loved singing "Jesus, Rose of Sharon" at church. :)

  10. So beautiful. The blooms are so white they don't look real. Wish we could get some summer rain and give the sprinklers a break.

  12. Kim, love the flowers... Rose of Sharon... That is a new one for me thanks for showing it to us! I don't do yard work much (I should for the exercise) my son likes to do the mowing on the riding tractor which is great for my hubby.

  19. That rose of sharon is beautiful. We have one tucked in the back that never fails to bloom like crazy. I just wish it was a better cut flower so that I could enjoy it inside, too.

  20. Beautiful Rose of Sharon...and full of buds! Yep...your hubby is lucky. Mine was too for years and now that he has more time than I do he is mowing the grass for the first time ever in our married life. It's good for him! That's MY story!

  21. I have a particular affection for the Rose of Sharon. My mom planted one in honour of my birth (my name being Sharon) and I remember always proudly going to show visitors my special plant! X Sharon

  22. Morning Kim,
    Love your bush..I have a lavender Rose of Sharon, which I have to be careful around because a growing family of Grey Catbirds are nesting. They are too cute and really do sound like a cat meowing.

    Mine also is covered with a gazillion buds and sits outside my kitchen sink window. Gives me a lovely view for weeks.

    Happy to know I am not the only wife mowing the lawn..3 acres here!!

    Have a great weekend and Happy Father's Day (if it applies) to Mr.SSS

  23. Rose of Sharon is such a beautiful old fashioned small tree. Wish I had one. My neighbor does. I wonder if the tree puts out shoots that I could dig up. I'll have to check on that. Have a wonderful and fun weekend.
