Today is "Someday"

For months I have been looking at the bed around the hibiscus and saying "someday" I will expand that area since they are getting sooooooo big. Today I started weeding around them, one thing led to another as those things are want to do in the garden and before I knew it the whole 12foot long bed was 1 foot wider.
Those babies come back bigger and bigger each year and it looks like this will be a banner year for blooms. Since we basically had no winter, they are already covered with buds and that usually doesn't happen until late June.
I have two, a red and a white. The second spring they started growing I was really afraid someone driving down the alley would think the white one was a "pot" plant, the leaves looked very similar. Course some of our neighbors are the sort that would start picking the leaves instead of calling the narcs.
I can hardly wait until they start blooming so I can take pictures for you all to see. The blooms are usually 8-12 inches across.
