Beautiful blooms

I did not visit my blog for so long time but been in paint over my head . We try to decorate the house and our plan was for a very speedy job . Do you think was working ? NO  NO all the wrong things happen . Sealing going down , paint making bubbles and all sort of other thinks. In the middle of all this madness I came with the idea of re potting my beautiful Chinese Hibiscus . Then I hold my breath to see how many of them are going to die as they was having buds and is my understand when they start flowering you could not disturb them. Pruned them well in the same time.
And here they are after about two days , I was wondering how strong the stalk is for this two pink flowers to stay so strait up

The Orange one initial was Yellow but over the last 2-3 years became orange and the the Pink one was Red
Is  very nice to wait and see what colour will be next year.
And  I still have the initial Plant with what I start my little garden

Of-course Tiger had to check and see if this roses retained they own taste as he is eating them for desert as hairballs medication.
Another beautiful flower at which I start to get better are the Orchids
I do hope by next week to finish painting ( still have a bedroom , stairs and kitchen )and then get back to some sawing as I am busting with ideas and notice my stash is starting to go up to the sealing .

Happy crafting all
Lots of hugs


  1. you are good being able to do your own decorating, I have had to get a man in to do the hall stairs and landing so expensive but I cannot do it so will have to pay. Flowers looking beautiful, rather like the orange one a lovely colour

    1. Thanks Margaret, Love the flowers too and I am amazed always with the new shades and forms what they come out too.
      As for the decorating my husband is helping me but the painting is on my back, now I kind of having in off, I want to give up on the kitchen but my daughter is keep pushing me...

  2. Rene,
    The flowers are stunning! The cat knows what beauty is, that's an adorable photo of him (her?) . I've always loved hibiscus but Mom wouldn't have them - she said they attracted termites. Have you ever heard of such a thing? I would think the termites would rather eat our house than a plant. That's what I would do if I were a termite, anyway. lol
    Keep up the good work!

    1. Hi Cynthia, in the area were we leave there are no termites but we have ants a lot. Anyway we never had problems about this and hope you are not going ever to have termites because they will really eat your house.
      And thanks so much for your big heart in sharing all those beautiful patterns with everyone.
