Hibiscus syriacus, Rose of Sharon, blooms now in a wonderful pink at the Arboretum.
It is an especially appropriate dedication for my son and his bride on their wedding day. The flower has a plethera of symbolism - one from the song of Soloman: "I am the rose of Sharon, and the lily of the valleys." (Solomon 2:1), that has been interpreted to mean the love of God, the love of husband and wife. In other symbolism, this flower also means fertility, abiding love, and the symbol of the perfect bride.
Today of all days, may the blessings of such richness be upon my son and new daughter-in-law as they take the vows of love and marriage. May their union and lives be filled with joy, happiness and the blessings of a lifetime.
BEST WISHES - MIKE AND BRITTNEY!
