It is getting harder to find blooming flowers nowadays, but these beautiful white rose of Sharon burst into bloom after we had two warm days of weather. Some mornings, our temperature was in the 30s, we also had thick fog, and chilly rain. It was very unpredictable.
I took these photos last week, now all the green leaves have turned brown and yellow. There were still many buds on this plant, but I'm pretty sure they will just remain buds.
