Teasing Georgia

I've come to realize through posting on this blog that I definitely am a lover of roses.  There are certain ones that I've noticed seem to perform well here in this South Carolina Garden.  This is one lovely rose and I'd like to share it with you today along with some information about it.

We Have Buff Orpingtons!

I am so excited that we finally have Buff Orpingtons here at Hibiscus House.  This picture shows them at 2 1/2 weeks old.  We really lucked up getting them at 2 1/2 weeks.  To me that means 2 1/2 weeks less to have under the light in the brooder!  Come on inside to see more pictures and video of these beautiful little chicks.

Gloria and Her Azaleas

Good morning!  I thought I'd take you back to a month ago when the azaleas were blooming.   Isn't Gloria a cute fountain?  I just like to walk around the gardens and see her sweet gentle face.  I've planted white azaleas around her and it is a peaceful garden.  I have four azaleas in this garden.  Three bloom first and the one behind Gloria blooms last.  When we plant things we hope that certain ones will bloom at the same time and if you stop to think about it they should.  Planted same time and the same type of plants, yet they show you they have a mind of their own.  Gloria's azalea the one directly behind her is always last but let me tell you it is a grand bloomer.  It takes it's time showing up but when it makes it's grand entrance it is well worth it!  Come on into the garden to see....

May What's Going On?

I trust that all of the mothers out there had a wonderful day!  I did and was surprised by my children in such cute and fun ways!  I tear up when I think about how much they mean to me.  I'd be lost without them.  Come on inside to see What's Going On....

The Old Homeplace

Not long ago I posted a few pics of the old shack and hand pump.  Today I share a few more that were taken that day.  I love the fact that there is beauty to be found in everything.  Look at the old buildings and items saved from others now gone.  Notice the colors and the textures. Time has a way of changing things, doesn't it?  Buildings fall, items rust and no longer work, but the memories linger on.  
Join me today won't you for a look at simple beauty......
