I Looked Out the Window and What Did I See?



As many of you head in to fall, we are in a constant state of bloom! The little scrubby trees in our yard are covered in these pretty yellow and pink blossoms. The Rainbow Shower tree is the official tree of Honolulu. I found an article about them here:



John loves to climb into this little "tree" and scare me!


Can you guess what kind of tree it is? Here's a clue:



He climbs in the hibiscus hedge under my kitchen window. Because it gets trimmed frequently we have only seen a couple flowers on it, but this week there are three!

A busy week ahead:
A fieldtrip with Sydney.
4 little boys here to play.
Hannah is getting braces.
School Photos.
Fun!

We have two hibiscus plants, too. I wouldn't call them hedges, but we're not in Hawaii, either. The flowers are so huge and bright, I love them.

those shower blossoms are lovely :)

We have a hibiscus 'tree' and it is actually loving this cooler weather. The blooms actually stay a day or two longer. I'm going to have to drag it into the house soon, though, before it freezes :(

I love the picture of John, too cute! There he goes again, being a boy. :) The flowers are beautiful. Are you tired of living in Hawaii yet?

Wendy...pssst. I am aware of the undergarments thing...
DH and I were trying to be funny, and we were not trying to insult anyone...

I get asked about the undergarmnets all of the time and I grew up RLDS...
