I'll tell you, it stinks not having a camera. But here's a photo of one of my pal's Rose of Sharon bushes from back in August. Her hedge is pretty well bloomed off now; we're moving into mum and aster season here in greater Outer Podunk. Which is actually my very favorite time of year...so with any luck I'll soon be able to share some images of that again.
