Lately, every morning when I go out into the garden, the okra patch is full of gorgeous yellowy-cream flowers with maroon centers. I've been thinking that they look a lot like hibiscus, or maybe mallow, and wondering why people don't plant them as ornamentals.

It turns out my instincts are good on all counts! And I think the photo on that page captures them nicely.

For the record, the eggplants are very beautiful, too, with their little purple blooms.
