A friend once told me I should never plant a Hibiscus near my front door.
In her culture it is believed
if a young girl is living in a house where Hibiscus grow near the front door;
She will never marry.
We used to have an exotic Hibiscus plant. It's gorgeous flowers
were perfect for wearing in our hair.
The plant flourished near the front door at gemmashouse.
The spell worked for a long time.
There were a lot of young boys courting
No one acceptable
Our precious daughters.
One year the Hibiscus got sick. Don't know if it was too much water,
or too much sun,
that killed it.
Both girls are married now.
I miss my daughters and the Hibiscus flowers in my hair.
