A few pink Rose of Sharon blooms~
Providing a pop of color~
Attracting busy bees. . .
Buzzing from bloom to bloom. . .
In a state of pollen-collecting-bliss. . .

Wishing you a little bliss & amusement in your tasks :-)

I love Rose of Sharon. They are so beautiful and hardy. A totally under rated shrub. Yours are beautiful.

We had several Rose of Sharon at the farm and none at our home now. I think we should do something about that!
Your photos are amazing, Mary!
Bliss and amusement – lovely things to think about as the weekend comes closer.
We have seen few bees up here this year and are concerned that our fruit trees weren’t adequately pollinated – time will tell.
I’m on a quest this weekend to acquire a Rose of Sharon! How beautiful your garden grows!
Beautiful !!! I love the deep color. Mine are all light. Might have to go shopping..
Happy Thursday and hugs from Savannah, Cherry
Hi Mary, Your Rose of Sharon is pretty. My son dated a girl named Sharon once and she said her name was in the bible. He said, “Where?” I remember that so vividly and he looked it up and it is Soloman 2:1. I I think of that remark and the answer every time I see a rose of sharon flower. Your post has also sparked a question. I have been admiring your dove cote for a long time in your posts. That is what it is called isn’t it ? But I am curious that the holes are so small and doves are larger birds. What kind of birds frequent your house? Love all the pictures especially the one with the bumble bee and new buds. Both the rose of sharon and the bumble bee remind me of my grandmother’s house. Now, you have caused me to reminisce and think of questions I have. I loved your gardenia post too. Hope, I commented- crazy but I can’t remember!!!
Hi Bonnie~ We have bluebirds that nest every spring/summer. I have photos you can see of them here.
Mary, these are beautiful images. We had a bank of Rose of Sharon across one side of our yard in our previous home. I’d forgotten about this lovely shrub. I need to add some to this garden.
Hope you have a great weekend. ~ Sarah

That is one happy bumblebee. Wonderful shots. I hope you have a great week.
Gorgeous, vibrant blooms and beautiful photos! I thought it was a hibiscus at first – they must be part of the same plant family.
Beautiful plant. Lovely photos. Enjoy today.
Beautiful outdoor shots!!! Happy Wednesday!
Lovely shots! The bumblebee looks quite happy!
What a gorgeous shade of pink. I love how you captured the dew drops on the petals.
Great photos of your Rose of Sharon. We have three of them and they self seed and come up like weeds. We also had a solid white one that appeared a few years ago. I’d love to have a start from it but it didn’t seem to self seed like the pink ones do. Anyway I love your photos and your dove cote. I’m still wishing and hoping for one. Hubby keeps saying he’ll make one but I’m not holding my breath. lol..Did you get yours online?
I’m ready to order one. LOL
