Hibiscus, and our fantastic neighbor

We've only lived in our new abode just over a year. Soon after moving in we met the neighbor right across the alley. She is an older lady and is just as vivacious as any young person. When ever I'm out gardening she comes over to visit, asking if there is anything I need. Another trash can for the yard debris, some twine, perhaps. Hatchet to chop the stump away.
Her yard was glorious this June. I fell in love with her blooming hibiscus at the alley fence row. Everyday the blooms were more numerous and getting larger. The largest was the size of a large dinner plate.

Amy Ruth my hibiscus looks exactly the same and only recently bloomed. It is so exotic looking!
