Most hibiscus trees don't come back,they are more of a tropical,depends on how cold your winters get there.



It's quite large so I would assume it's been here for a while. I'll take a picture of it today and send it to you.

Okay Yorkie here are the pictures.

The hibiscus tree:


A close up. Are the brown ones last years that haven't fallen off yet? I think the little green ones are new buds. Any ideas?


Next question. The lemon tree. There are an ton of little buds on this tree and I'm sure it won't be able to support all of them. Should I cut some of them off or just let them fall off? I'm so new to this. I need HELP!!



Close up:


And the Calla Lily just because I think it's super pretty. There are more coming up now but this is the only one that is fully open.

Oh wow,the hibiscus tree is great,the dead limbs should be cut off in the fall before it loses its leaves so you get the right limbs

It will bloom for you this year


Leave the fruit on the tree it will fall off naturally as a rule

I envy you the cala lily it is beautiful,now show me a pic of the peony tree

Give me 5 minutes and I'll go take a picture of it. It's super tiny and doesn't have any flowers on it though. It's not very impressive.

Peony Tree



Watermelon. Behind it are the cucumbers.




I think this is called a Mosiac Kong?? Not really sure but I think it's pretty.



And the herbs. From left to right. Chives, Rosemary, Basil, Oregano (I think), and Dill.



If you see anything that I'm doing wrong please point it out. My parents never gardened. They actually used to pull them out or just kill them from lack of understanding. So I really have nothing to go on.

And yes I know the grass is super long. Hubby has been working double shifts and I have no idea how to even start a lawn mower. Not that I really want to know. Razz

You are doing an awesome job Boston,it looks great. I am really anxious to watch the peony tree,so consider it my child and keep pics coming as it changes.

I wonder if they are like a peony and they usually won't bloom the first year they are planted.

This is the colour it is supposed to be when it does bloom.



The hibiscus tree is hot pink. Grin

I can't wait until next year. I hope it gets a few blooms on it. I love the burgundy colour. It's one of my absolute favourites.

That's sad that your shopping season is almost done. pout I'll keep you updated with pictures. I really want my fruits and veggies!!

Don't recall if I updated everyone on the pneumonia....so here goes.

Didn't do a second xray, doc said it sounds much better....but still off til at least Thursday. Second round of antibiotics is all I'm taking now. Smile

Felt like crap all day today and had a ton of company yesterday, which is why I wasn't here.

Thank Yorkie. I've got over 700 pics to remember the trip by. Can't believe how fast 9 days went. So much more that we wanted to see and do. Took until mid week to finally get into vacation mode, then only a few more days and we were packing to come home.
