Jasmine & Rose of Sharon

So this past week for a "field trip" in our language class, we decided to go to a nursery
(There are TONS in tropical countries and they're so cheap!)
Along with learning words and what not, we bought 4 new plants.
These 2 are Jasmine plants.
We just cut our grass and cut all the "green" stuff off the top...the green will be back in a couple weeks... it's not dead...so stop judging me :)
Hopefully the Jasmine will be climbing all-over our fence in a couple months.
Then, their sweet smell will help soothe me as I wash dishes
(kitchen window looks out at them)
For those of you not familiar with Bath&Body Works labels, Jasmine is a small and very fragrant flower.
See?
For our front yard we bought 2 Hibiscus plants.
Did you know that the "Rose of Sharon" is actually an hibiscus?
Since learning that a few months ago, hibiscus plants have grown (pun intended) closer to my heart. They've already, in 1 week, grown 5 flowers.
These pink ones are perfect for THIS Sharon!
So that's all that's gone on this week. If you have advice on how to make hibiscus plants into a "Tree" shape please comment and help. Also, if you've heard that the Rose of Sharon is actually another flower, lemme know and I'll buy that one too.
