These gorgeous flowers are gracing a huge bush in our back yard. They look sort of like a version of hibiscus, but they're actually called Rose of Sharon.
They grow all over the place. These are the white ones. There are pink ones way up high, but I haven't been able to get pix of those.
I hoped to catch a pic of the bee that was happily feeding from this blossom...but he was too fast for my camera. The color & detail of these flowers that my Mom planted so many years ago are a lovely gift each summer. They don't last long, but we seem to have lots of buds this year, so the show should go on for some time.
Mother Nature is the most talented artist.
