  1. Very beautiful and unique looking plant isn’t Pam! Your green thumb brings out the best! I can see he winged effect and why it’s called that! Have you seen any birds visit it thinking itā€™s a friendly bird or just a cool place to park for a while?

    1. Thank you, Lawrence! But this plant is growing wild in my yard. I have a black thumb. šŸ˜‰ Can’t tell you the number of hibiscus plants I’ve bought but they all die immediately… so I let the plants that want to live here do so freely. LOL

      1. That’s a good thing Pam, because what can and will flourish in your domain should and what shouldn’t, will not; perhaps like the ā€œbirds of a featherā€ kind of thing! And look which species or type likes being near you, one with Paradise in its name, and, a bird no less having wings! Angels go with Paradise don’t they now! šŸ˜‰

  2. I love these BoP! The one in front of the San Diego Zoo towers over visitors. It’s over 20ft tall.

    The whole “if it’s here and growing” approach to gardening is fantastic. Plants know where they want to be.

    Oh, that reminds me: how’s Myrtle?

  3. I believe they’re going to have a fabulous year! I can’t wait to see what they do.

    Y’know, in my head they’ve become detectives solving cozy mysteries when you’re not looking. I guess it’s the whole old fashioned name of Myrtle that has me imagining them played by Maggie Smith & Penelope Wilton. I think I may have been watching too many British shows of late. (I’m going to have to make a list of the best shows I’ve watched because I know you’d like them, too!)
