Well the heat here is going to kill me I think! So far the heat (or maybe my lack of watering every night) has only killed three plants. My bareroot hibiscus is making up for it! I bought this thing bareroot and it didn't do anything for 6 months. At the end of the rains it grew to almost four feet with humongous blooms. She's a keeper. The blooms are 9 inches in diameter.
We dropped the price on our house again! Now it is down to $480K, but the good news is we had two people come by today to look at it. For some reason I think things are rolling in the right direction and I hope we get an offer soon.
