i still have west virginia flowers to share with you

as well as washington dc flowers

and let’s not forget the homestead in virginia flowers

but the hibiscus in our garden having been going off!

it’s really the only thing that has been going off

but that’s ok

because they have been amazing and putting a smile on my face just about daily
