Blooming in the Sun

Closeups from Summer in the neighborhood! Hibiscus bushes and other garden flowers bloom in July, in various shades. They are mostly native to East Asia but they thrive in North America. They are popular in tended gardens, but no one knows when they first “arrived” on these shores in their wild forms.

Asia and the Americas have had more interaction through the centuries than we realize.
