I'm glad you stopped by. I'm Dolly and I'd like to introduce you to our simple Southern Lifestyle.

Chuck and I live in the rural South. The inspiration for writing The Hibiscus House Blog is the wonderful location.

I love the Lord, family, friends, and the simple things in life. Those are truly the best!  I've been asked many times if this is a bed and breakfast.  It must show, the dream I once had of owning one. But, hey family keeps me busy and my life fulfilled enough and that's what counts 

Our state is famous for beautiful sunny beaches, the Lowcountry, many cities and towns full of history. I can't forget the many ponds and lakes for fishing and swimming. Oh, and don't let me forget the foothills and the mountains that are close enough to enjoy.

Our home, Hibiscus House is a little Southern Colonial Farmhouse situated on family farmland. The location is fairly secluded and offers peace and the beauty of the nature that surrounds us. 

The family and I love the fact that there are no street lights to take away from the glorious night sky.  The moon and stars do shine brightly!  In the daylight, the pristine blue sky and fluffy white clouds are a sight to behold. It doesn't take long to realize that the Lord surrounds us with such beauty.

No matter what the season we are blessed with beautiful sights

This is a wonderful location for rest, relaxation, and the feeling of a constant vacation. Hey, that may be the reason I've become quite a happy hermit.  

I do write about what I know and have learned from my wonderful parents, grandparents, and even way back to the great grandparents!  Friends, now I can't forget what I've learned from friends in the past and hope to learn more from new ones!

I had a younger guy friend once who said this about me, " She sure talks about the old times".  He's right I do and besides great memories, they are learning experiences always.  

The past teaches you a lot about what to expect in the future.  Some things can be improved upon and some can not.  Live, Learn, & enjoy!


Get in touch with the soil and enjoy some of the endorphins. 
Go out and create your own landscape and gardens. They bring you joy! 




You know I actually enjoy the wildlife that surrounds us

Coyotes, Dingos, Foxes, Wild Turkeys, Racoons, Opossums who visit regularly.  A beautiful Peacock visited once, spent the day with me. I was gardening and he pranced around in all his glory and spectacular color without fear. 

I love to hear the coyotes houl and yip when they run behind the property. 

We have resident opossums that come to the porches to have a feast.  The dog and cat don't seem to mind sharing a bit.

It is a delight to see the graceful deer that seem to float across the yard in the morning and then back again at dusk.  

We've seen wild turkeys large and small spend time under the big oaks.  Some return yearly, now that is fun to see how they grow.  

I've watched otters and beavers go across the yard heading for the big swamp behind us. That was a sight believe me.   




Relax, grab yourself a cold glass of ice tea, and take a comfortable seat.

I'm pondering what to do next?
Thankful to the good Lord for all His blessings.

I'll leave you with this and I do believe it to be true:

Be who you were meant to be, no other
Do not worry about the things you can not change
Be the same always so people will know who you are
Make the world a better place where you stand
It will make a difference

Thank you for visiting and please come again
