“1 I am the rose of Sharon, and the lily of the valleys.
2 As the lily among thorns, so is my love among the daughters.
3 As the apple tree among the trees of the wood, so is my beloved among the sons. I sat down under his shadow with great delight, and his fruit was sweet to my taste.” Song of Solomon 2:1-3 KJV
Hibiscus is a genus belonging to the Mallow family which is made up of over 200 species of shrubs, trees, annuals, and perennials. Hibiscus flowers usually last for just a day, and then close and drop off the plant. Some are hardy and survive freezing temperatures, while others are truly tropical, and must be treated like an annual when grown in colder climates.
“Hibiscus” by Theresa Anne Moore
See her joyful expression!
See how she blossoms with love.
See how His tender affection
Sustains her with fruit from above.

Here at Serenaded Softly, my theme for the month is Blossoming Verses, where I’ll share a picture of something in bloom, a passage of scripture, and a poem.
