Another Surprise in the Yard

We thought we were finished discovering things in the yard, but we were wrong! This small tree in front of our house surprised us by giving us big, purple blossoms. We don't know the name of it, but it's pretty!

(Update: Grandma and Grandpa say it's the Rose of Sharon.)

It looks like this tree in the back (and the other one just like it) are the same kind of tree but with lighter-colored blossoms. The huge begonias in the background are the ones that froze back to almost nothing in January. You'd never know it now. We love to have things blooming in the yard!
