None of the other Rose of Sharons are still blooming, except for this white one.  She stands at the walkway to our house, under the shade of the towering water oak my dad planted many years ago.

She is a welcome sight  walking up the walk on a hot summer's day.  She is pristine and icy and just looking at her is cooling.  She is the jewel in our shade garden.

It has been a hectic weekend, draining both because of the heat and emotion.

Wishing you a Monday that brings kindness, a week that brings joy.  Peace to everyone.


  1. You have such a great variety of trees, bushes and shrubs there with something new blooming all the time. This white one is beautiful. What a nice sight to have going on there.

  2. That is a nice blossom to come home to.
    Hugs, Julia
