There's A Butterfly In My Basement







Our very old Hibiscus tree is in bloom in the basement......it's winter home.


Oh yes, check out the 'GIVEAWAY' I am having at the top left just below the 'header'!

  1. Very lovely! That's a beautiful plant to grace a home. I love hibiscus with its bold and beautiful flowers. I don't have any indoor now, but I do have a couple of them growing in the garden. The flowers are almost as big as dinner plates!

    1. Thanks Martha. This one goes outside in June....gradually, to adjust to the warm temps after living in the basement for 6 months.

    1. It is by a window that lets in a minimum of light....but it appears that is all it and a few others need.

  6. Jim- these blooms are beautiful! I've tried to winter my hibiscus in the basement- but when I bring it outside-- it takes it all summer to catch up and make more blooms-- I must be doing something wrong!! Yours is gorgeous--

    1. I have no idea why it blooms every year in winter in the basement! Unless it may be 'rootbound'?! This one has changed colour a bit.....from more a yellow to this tango tangerine golden.

  8. I saw it and all I could think was 'bloom where you're planted.' I wonder if it's good advice if you're kept in the basement... :-)

  9. There's even beauty in your basement. I love it!

    Just don't go putting that outside yet. Even we had freezing temps last night.
