Frogs and Flowers
My froggy is starting to get his arms and legs. I think this is the only thing I have worked on this week and it even then, it was for 2 days. I'm not in a slump, I'm in a time crunch. I have only managed about an hour of free time a day and I have spent that doing laundry and other chores that have been neglected lately.
I have mentioned before that I bought some "exotic" hibiscus plants. I had almost given up on some of them. The heat and drought was making it hard on them and they weren't blooming. Well, we finally got a little rain and a small break from the heat and we have gotten a few more blooms. This is "Red Planet". The blooms are huge! They are around 10 inches in diameter! They are really pretty.
And I love this one! This is "Key Largo". The photo doesn't do it justice. It is actually purple with an orangy-yellow around the outside.
I have photos of my chicks coming soon. :)
