Flowers For Joni

While I was at my Mom's house yesterday, she asked me to take this picture of her Rose of Sharon variation. She wanted to share it with Joni. You see, my mom reads Joni's blog My Piece of Heaven-The Diary of a Farmwife every day. She loves all of the pictures Joni shares (as do my children and I). She especially likes the prairie pictures. I think it reminds her of home, as Kansas must be alot like Southern Illinois was when she was a child. Anyway, my mom was sure Joni would enjoy her flowers. They really are beautiful. If you look closely you can see that the trunk is braided. Very cool. So, even though my photography skills are no where near as expert as Joni's, here it is mom. Your city version of "prairie pictures".

Now I am really thrilled that mom enjoys Joni's blog, but I think she skips mine alot. So just incase, on my way out her door, I snapped another "prairie picture". A HUGE spikey weed growing out of her peonies! I could hear her from inside the house yelling "DON'T YOU DARE! STOP THAT...YOU BETTER NOT!" HA! You better read my blog everytime you read Joni's!!!

ROFL- oh my you are naughty Bren. Like solstitches said I bet it isn't there now.

The rose of sharon is gorgeous! Does your Mom bring it indoors in the winter since it is in a pot? The braided trunk is very cool. Your Mom must have a green thumb! Way to go Momma of Bren.

It looks like a hibiscus to me - I know what a Rose of Sharon looks like really.
