I didn't have any fresh flowers so the background is actually a photo of a red hibiscus on a greeting card.


No invites please.Thanks so much for your visits and also for any comments and faves. I really do appreciate them all heaps. :-)

Wild hibiscus. Hopefully it will bloom before someone cuts it down. It is growing in a park, where they often cut the wildflowers down to the ground:( I have to be lucky to catch the flowers before they are gone.

My hibiscus has been in bloom for over a year now since I keep it in the house- he must be very happy :)

Dear friends thank you so much for your visits I really appreciate them- I have not really had enough time to comment but I have been looking at all your wonderful work every few days. Wishing you all a happy day xoxoxo!

Pour tout savoir sur les hibiscus, visitez le groupe Yahoo :

The hibiscus flowers don't last long, in a day they are gone and wilted and all their beauty with them. I had been waiting for this particular bud to open because it stood out tall on the bush, away from the other flowers, I knew it would photograph well. The day the bud bloomed it rained .. and rained .. and rained some more. I thought it would be ruined but it wasn't. When the rain stopped it was more beautiful than ever :))


Have a great weekend everyone! :))

There's something I like about this picture with fuzziness/out of focus stamen...

This hibiscus flower is quite small compared to my other hibiscus plants. The flower is about 3-4 inches in diameter.

Hibiscus are large shrubs or small trees that produce huge, colorful, trumpet-shaped flowers over a long season. Other common names include Chinese hibiscus and tropical hibiscus. Hibiscus are deciduous shrubs with dark green leaves; the plants can grow to 15 feet tall in frost-free areas. Flowers may be up to 6 inches diameter, with colors ranging from yellow to peach to red. Hibiscus can be planted singly or grown as a hedge plant; they can also be pruned into a single-stemmed small tree. The flowers are attractive to butterflies and hummingbirds.

My favorite flower.

Hibiscus (/hɨˈbɪskəs/ or /haɪˈbɪskəs/ is a genus of flowering plants in the mallow family, Malvaceae. It is quite large, containing several hundred species that are native to warm-temperate, subtropical and tropical regions throughout the world. Member species are often noted for their showy flowers and are commonly known simply as hibiscus, or less widely known as rose mallow. The genus includes both annual and perennial herbaceous plants, as well as woody shrubs and small trees. The generic name is derived from the Greek word ἱβίσκος (hibískos), which was the name Pedanius Dioscorides (ca. 40–90) gave to Althaea officinalis
