    Beautiful hibiscus and blooming in your winter ! That's amazing! Of course here in our tropical climate it blooms the whole year round. Here's 2 pics of our hibiscus taken at an agri park. That little girl is my grand-daughter.

    Very very nice both : and your grand-daughter and the hibiscus.
    By the way, and I have many different hibiscus and how soon all will thrive, even if they were outside this winter and sometimes -19 degrees Celsius, snow and wind , if in the house was to their liking. I like this plants .
    Of course to you in your country is their heaven not here !But they adapted!
    And of course we( me ,Dana ,,, ) give a lot of love !

    Beautiful pictures. I especially like your yellow/gold Christmas cactii. It makes me feel home sick. I had a huge yellow one which I had to leave when I moved. The friends I gave it to left it out in the cold and it froze. I wish I had taken cuttings off it before I left. I have been trying to find another yellow one with no success. I find pink, white rose, red but never another yellow one. How I wish I could find another one.

    Congrats Ruxandra. I really admire your persistence and resourcefulness in growing the hibiscus. Sometimes we take things too much for granted and forget how difficult it must be to grow plants away from their natural habitat.

    Yes Amey they are real tree ferns and are very common in our highland areas.

    Great looking blooms. Our christmas cactus didn't do so well this year. I think it dried out too much over the summer. It is still alive, just did not grow so well. Yew, your grand-daughter is beautiful! The hibiscus she has in the second photo is wonderful with the yellow edging.

    Cheers,
    BD
