our hibiscus are in bloom as well as some pink crape myrtle. so pretty...flowers help make life more beautiful. and then there are mocking birds. so noisy and mean. they are around the house and bombard us when we get to close to where they have nested. our beagle is afraid of them...kinda funny to see her run away in fear of them. i want to be like a flower and not a mocking bird...beautiful to be around.
