Hibiscus flower

Our halberdleaf hibiscus, Hibiscus laevis, has begun to bloom by the front door. These huge blooms open for one day only before dropping and laying spent on the ground. I got the plant at the Wildflower Center, where many of our plants come from.

Today, Lady Bird Johnson was laid to rest in a grave at her ranch outside of Stonewall, Texas. It would be ridiculous for me to attempt to say anything about her other than, "Thank you."
