I have been looking forward to revisiting my photographs of this Rose of Sharon – Blue Chiffon for the Flower a Day for some time. It is most certainly one of my favourite flowers of this project so far and so today I get to indulge myself and you all by sharing this with you. The colour, delicacy and intricacy of these blooms are almost unparalleled in my collection and so I have no hesitation in posting a different flower* of this variety with you. You might recall that these plants were discovered in a Home Depot, hidden next to the lawnmowers and leaf blowers, at the end of the season. My main regret is that I didn’t buy this when I saw it. I can only hope that I will find another next year. In my opinion there can be no risk from an overdose of beauty, so I simply hope it serves to bring some joy into your day, wherever you may be, my friends.
