I remember well the drought of 1988. It was my first election and standing at the polls for the primary was absolutely brutal. So glad that part of my life is over.
Now, it is all about the garden, if and when I go outside. So, without further yakking, here are some flowers that are actually loving this weather.
First are two hardy hibiscus. I no longer remember what varieties they are but I have had them for a long time. The flowers are almost six inches across.
