In Full Bloom

_MG_1822

After a long, long time, the hibiscus has rewarded my patience, persistence, and eternal optimism. The last few blooms from this plant were sorry looking things, and after those it stopped producing buds altogether and showed every indication of giving up the ghost entirely. I moved it to a different location, and now, despite its worm-eaten leaves, after weeks and weeks and weeks, it’s finally produced one happy looking bloom that’s lasted two days, and there are another three buds on the way.

Not that I’m overly fond of hibiscus or anything, but it’s good to see persistence and hard work paying off. Especially after so many other plants have completely withered away.

    Believe me, it’s the daily dose of nitrogen taking effect :-).
