These two Rose of Sharon bushes have been growing by our driveway since we first moved in our home some 25 years ago. My mother and my aunt each had one and they each gave me a start - the pink one from Mom and the white from Aunt Sallie Mae.
Both of these special ladies have since passed away and I miss them so much.
This time of year, when the Rose of Sharons bloom, I'm reminded of these wonderful women.
Mom's favorite color was pink and she would be so happy
with their lovely blooms! She was quite a gardener and gave me starts of many of her plants.
Aunt Sallie Mae lived across the street from our first home. Her Rose of Sharon was in her front yard. I remember watching her trim it, later giving me a start for our new home.
We are planning to build our retirement home next year. There are many plants that I want to bring with us so this fall will be a busy one. You can bet I'll be taking several starts from these two special bushes! Our new place wouldn't be 'home' without them!
Thanks for stopping by!
