Mosaic Monday

 On our Saturday trip to Camano Island we saw so many beautiful flowers

 First was this wonderful Hibiscus Bush
 With two colors of flowers on the same bush


 In front of a second hand store were these lovely flowers
 And on a back road we came across this clever planter full of Pinwheel Petunias
 Hollyhocks were everywhere
The flowers of summer

I love the white bicycle planter- it really draws the eyes to it. I wonder if the hibiscus and hollyhock plants are related. I know that hollyhocks are individual plants and that the hibiscus is a bush, but their blooms look similar. Thanks for sharing these magnificent flowers.

Pink hollyhocks, spiraling upward along my grandma's back fence, welcomed me to her gate and into her lovely yard every day. We lived right in back of her, and every type of flower thrived under her nurturing hand.
Lovely pictures!

Gorgeous hibiscus blooms. I love the dark interiors and white/pink petals. Great contrast.
The bicycle planter is lovely with the pinwheel petunias. I planted some of them this year and haven't been very impressed with them. But they look great here.

I love hollyhocks but they don't like southern gardens I fear - I just can't get them to do much at all despite trying!

The bicycle planter is such a great statement piece. I would like a smaller version in my garden. I think hibiscus blooms are so beautiful. Unfortunately they did not last long in my garden...too hot, I think. It's always so nice to see flowers from different parts of the country. Enjoy your week!

The hibiscus are blooming here but hollyhocks are about done. The bushes manage to stay very attractive even though those flowers drop at the end of the day.
