This and that and a flower

         

Afternoon, I thought I would share the pictures above with you today I don't know if this is unusual or not but when I came down this morning my Hibiscus had flowered. I had noticed a bud on it a few days ago but hibiscus can be funny sometimes and the buds just drop off.  I have had this plant since last summer and it flowered for a long time out in the vestibule but as it got colder I brought it in and put it on the kitchen windowsill and this is my reward a flower in February.  I have had Hibiscus before but they never last very long so I am feeling very chuffed at this one.  Stuart has had a busy morning yet again filling the memory on the new phone he must be and expert now he has done this so many times. Ordered a new game at the weekend from EBay called Hexalot I know Joan on Stranny Days played this a while back and I have played the demo and I found it very good. Was disappointed it did not arrive today as we are not going out as it is very cold with a biting easterly wind, so it would have passed the afternoon.  We have decided to put on a video of Judge Deed the last part of this series so I will have to find out what happened. I know I'm older but I really really really like Martin Shaw. Oh well we can dream.lol.  Will go now and tidy up before we sit down to our program.  Love

your hibiscus is so pretty... did you cut it back when you took it in the house? My daughter keeps them in the house too because she has a perfect  spot by the glass patio doors with the sun coming in most of the day.... Her plant gets too big after a year though for the house as they can get messy losing the leaves then. I always have them in the yard too but this kind doesn't last the winter so I bought some perennial ones now that come back outside every year. I can't wait for the warmer weather and all the pretty flowers. Sandra

My hibiscus was beautiful all last summer, through the autumn and even early December. I forgot to bring it into a warmer room and it has died on me I am sad to say.  Beautiful flowers.
