A threefold cord is not quickly broken... Ecclesiastes 4: 12

I was thrilled today on December 3rd to see three blooms close together on my Hibiscus plant that stands 5 feet 6 inches tall in the flower pot...I carefully stood on the couch to shoot this picture as the blossoms were on the very top of the plant.. In the several years that we've had the Hibiscus, this is the only time three flowers have shared their blooms ...Usually one (or two) at the most but not three. The hibiscus will bloom for two days and then take a rest before it blesses us again..

The Hibiscus plant held three
More blessings for us to see...
On the third day of December
in its blossoms to remember.
Poetry by me, AJP

    Wow, three blooms close to each other! Your Hibicus bloom is very healthy, I have never see one that tall and long lived. Do you use and fertilizer on it ?

    Thank you all for the comments...Ann we don't use fertilizer on it ....just give it water when needed. In fact there was a time when we thought the plant was dying and then all of a sudden it perked up again .. this is the first time when it has had so many buds and flowers blooming all at once..The flower blooms for two days and then the petals drop off..until the buds open again somewhere else on the plant.....Sometimes it takes a rest where we don't see blooms for awhile..It is a great upper lifter in the winter time when everything is gray outside to see these beautiful blossoms in the house.
