When my husband and I first moved into our house, 20 years ago, we planted a bunch of little twigs in the ground in a row, lining each side of our back yard.
They were Rose of Sharon’s. They were from one of those catalogues where you get 20 plants for something like five dollars. We didn’t have high hopes and felt silly lining up our 8 inch twigs. But we have been rewarded a hundred times. They are gorgeous, huge, and filled with flowers. I love their old-fashioned sweetness.
Just for fun, I did a little “Retro” action on one. All desaturated and pale pink.
