Rose of Sharon

We have a Rose of Sharon growing in our side yard that has special meaning to us.  Each spring we wait and watch for it's blooms. This year it bloomed in early spring and we thought that was all. But the other day we saw another flower.  We were so excited that we were going to have more flowers than usual.  The bush originally grew in my husband, Jim's, grandmother's yard in Tennesse.  His father took some of the bush and planted it in his yard in Ohio.  My husband took some and planted it in our yard here in Texas.  When we look at it we have fond memories of my husband's grandmother and his father.
