Someplace in Thyme

I have been creating since I was a little girl. I am happy to say that having my own website has opened up a whole new world for me. Trying new mediums is a joy and sometimes a real eye opener. I sell what I create on etsy and my website, someplaceinthyme. If you have questions,please email me at cpeterson72@q.com. I welcome new blog friends and am honored if you find my little piece of heaven interesting enough to follow.

Look What I Found.....

You have probably been through this before: your darling husband has to go to Lowe's for grass fertilizer and requests your company. It's the last place on earth you want to go on a gorgeous Saturday afternoon, but being the loving wife that you are, you go. While Mr. Handsome was over filling his cart with bags of stinky stuff, I wondered over to the plant area. I wasn't looking for anything particular, just browsing around, enjoying the sights and taking it all in. Then it happened!!!!! I fell in love. LOVE AT FIRST SITE.
I have always loved orange blooms, any orange blooms, but this is over the top beautiful. We grow lots of hibiscus plants in the desert. They are everywhere, every color and type. I am most enchanted by the single blooms instead of the doubles, but when I saw this plant, I had to bring it home. Oh, how I wish there was a scent, it would be heaven, I just know it.
So beautiful I had to show it again, once more, one more time.

This is a single and my favorite color: yellow. Isn't she pretty?! I love the throat of the single blooms and the stamens.

Just look at that!! It's so sad they only last a day or so, but then, they bloom all summer and into the winter. Isn't life grand!

This is one of many of my hibiscus. Not yet there, but on it's way. I am so excited......Happy Spring everyone.
My Camila is blooming also and look at the size of those flowers. Sadly, no scent here either. Do you see a pattern going on with me.....I never thought about that before...hummmm.

I hope each and everyone of you enjoys your gardens this year, with all the rain we have had across our great nation, there will be blooms enough for all!!!

Beautiful single and double hibiscus, Char. You grow camelias in the desert? I didn't know they'd grow there - I love them.

LoL..we have the same problem. I love going thru the hardware store. I must admit I've enjoyed it way before it was the in thiong to do. The smell of lumber, the paint, the sheets of copper and galvenized steel....Today we ended up at Home Depot..Jim went to lumber..me to garden, paint, home center. You guessed it He didn't find what he needed, but I came home with some pansies.
Happy Spring

HI char!!!!
I just might have to head back over to Lowes for that orange double hibiscus!!!!!that is one lovely plant!!!!
SEE you this Sat.
I'm sooo excited for it!!!!
I think everyone instead of chatting away and not being able to hear everyone, we should allow everyone like 3-5 minutes to introduce themselves, how they got started blogging, that way you would hear everyone and get to know everyone, or at least feel like you do!!!
hugs,
