Look What I Found In My Back Yard

Isn't she a beauty?
I've never had a hibiscus before and didn't realize what it was until it started blooming.

    2. it's one of the most popular teas here in Europe, has metalic taste and is filled with vitamin C, and has dark raspberry colour. They usually mix it with rosehip tea and aromas to make fruit teas

    3. I've heard of it. Just haven't tried it. If it weren't for the metalic taste it sounds pretty good.

  4. Cute pic of Faux Paw (love the name) with the flower. Looks like the dense leaves will form a nice, cool shady spot.
