tropical paradise

I went into the sunroom to try and convince Gus and Ollie that they should go out into the freezing cold, just for a few minutes, and I saw this beautiful bloom on our hibiscus plant! There are tons of buds all over it but this is the first bloom in awhile and it made me so happy!

and we've got lemons!  I know I am supposed to thin the fruit so it will develop better (and I am pretty sure the branch isn't sturdy enough to hold 5 lemons), but I just can't bring myself to do it yet!  
We've got 3 other citrus plants that are all blooming now and the room smells heavenly!  no wonder the dogs won't go outside!  well, that and it's 16ยบ outside.
