Snow in…March!

Yes, snow in March for northwest Alabama. ‘Made this photo just after midnight, with the Nikon™ set for snow scene. So incredible, isn’t it? About ten years ago, I was living in Mississippi and we actually got ice one March. So, the groundhog must have been correct- more winter weather. Just looking forward to the Spring equinox in about a week or so.

Lovely Rose of Sharon

This is a lovely Rose of Sharon, in bloom in our back yard. There are several species of Hibiscus syriacus, found in many areas of the world. These are deciduous shrubs, meaning they shed their leaves/blooms in the autumn. It is also during the autumn and the summer that the Rose of Sharon can be seen in bloom. The name can be confusing, as this shrub is actually not a species of rose. Isn’t the pink/lilac vivid and beautiful?
