I found some hibiscus in Minnesota. So, of course, I had to put them in my hair. (Even though I just cut mine and my top knot is pretty wimpy.)
Fun story: I recently found out our neighbor across the street (who reminds me of my mom and also totally embodies the Minnesota Nice persona) loves hibiscus as much as I do. Well, we hung out in her back yard today, and I saw that she has not one but FIVE gorgeous hibiscus bushes that she’s had for a while (she just brings them inside once the temps drop each year, and they are totally flourishing.) So, I asked her if I could pick two flowers for a certain kind of photo I like to take…et voila.
Moral of the story: Get to know your neighbors. Who knows, a cool friendship might bloom.
