The Other Side

Rose moss In January, the size of a dime

Do you think if Ben Franklin had been a florist, we would all be saying "a peony saved, is a peony earned?

A wife pointed at a flower and said "hibiscus". The husband waved at the flower as they walked on and said "Bye-Biscus"


This very red, very big hibiscus bloomed the day after we had 1/16 of an inch of rain. The backside is as pretty as the front.

Hello Sandra!:) Happy New Year, and many thanks for your best wishes. I'm not blogging in full swing just yet, just visiting bloggers who took the time to leave their Merry Christmas comments on my blog. I hope you have a wonderful 2017, and hope to see more funny puns that always brighten my day. Love the Hi, and Bye, biscus pun!:))

These flowers are a much needed sight. I have been trapped inside for about a week now with snow and ice. All the meetings and churches and schools have been closed for many days. Not that much snow, but a lot of ice that just won't go away with the sub zero temps. Flowers, WAH, I want them growing HERE NOW. Yes, the hibiscus are beautiful on both sides! I love your cheerful new header! Both flowers and Valentines Day all in one. I have already put out our Valentine things.
