My new backyard discovery: The Rose of Sharon shrub 🙂  Currently, in my small backyard I have; honeysuckle in the Spring, Mulberries in the Summer and now this beauty. I have much joy in discovering the little things in our small backyard.

The Rose of Sharon attracts butterflies, hummingbirds and ants seem to love the leaves which taste like lettuce. This plant is edible, has medicinal uses and high in vitamin C. A Google search will produce many recipes if your interested in trying. Please make sure you are using the correct plant and not a poisonous one.  🙂

I hope your having a Summer filled with wonder and discovery, even if it is in your own backyard. 🙂
