Not another flower picture!

The Rose of Sharon (Hibiscus syriacus), not named for my town, but planted everywhere, is in full bloom now. For most of the year it's a pretty unattractive shrub - it leafs out late, doesn't have an attractive leaf or interesting shape, and is generally forgettable. But for one month out of the year it's gorgeous - it attracts hummingbirds and monarch butterflies, and the color is wonderful. I haven't been out photographing all week but the weekend is upon us - I promise I'll have plenty of non-flower photos in the coming days! (I'm planning a very exciting trip to the town dump!)
