Sea Storm (Hibiscus syriacus petals)

To be honest they look almost exactly the same as a Great Spotted Woodpecker, but those are quite rare in Western Hungary - so am assuming it is a Syrian.

Last lights in my "Sun" garden


For convenience of maintenance and gardening, I divided my garden into two areas that I called, respectively, The Sun and The Moon, according to their position above the garden and seasonal movement in the sky.

Imagine zooming into this vibrant red composition! Ecstatic, isn't it!


So ecstatic in fact, that Hibiscus species represent nations: Hibiscus syriacus is the national flower of South Korea, and Hibiscus rosa-sinensis is the national flower of Malaysia. The red hibiscus is the flower of the Hindu goddess Kali, and appears frequently in depictions of her in the art of Bengal, India, often with the goddess and the flower merging in form. The hibiscus is used as an offering to goddess Kali and Lord Ganesha in Hindu worship.


And some varieties make delicious teas!


Biscayne Park, FL

Sky was blue, bright sun was out and sometimes cloud covering it in a hurry. I was under this flower and it was moving on passing wind. Moment I shot it, sun broke out from the clouds, almost blinding me. However this flower came out perfectly in the middle without me needing any crop or alteration. Except may be the colour tone :”)


This flower is National Symbol of:


* The Hibiscus rosa-sinensis (Bunga Raya or "Chinese hibiscus") is the national flower of Malaysia.


* The ma‘o hau hele (Hibiscus brackenridgei) is the state flower of Hawaii.


* The Hibiscus syriacus (Mugunghwa or "Rose of Sharon") is the national flower of South Korea.


* The Native Hibiscus is a national emblem of the Stolen Generation of indigenous peoples in Australia. Its colour denotes compassion and spiritual healing.


In Bangladesh, we call it Joba :")

Hoy cumple años mi joven amigo Fernando Felix y quiero dedicarle ésta foto porque el es un especialista en “ver” esos “otros mundos” e interpretarlos con gran creatividad y sentido del humor. Pero mejor que paséis por su galería para poder comprender a qué me refiero. ¡FELICIDADES, FERNANDO!


A mis amigas: estad atentas porque puede que continúe una interesante serie

que comenzó el año pasado ... ;-)

Rose of Sharon is a representation flower of summer.

How much can one person love another?

A universe exists in time and space,

Placed within the boundaries of one place,

Pressed into a point far from forever.

Yet love comes to us from some quite other,

Visiting our sorrow with its grace,

Answering our rage with its embrace,

Lending us the wisdom of its wonder.

Even as I say this, you are there,

Nestling in where need undoes the day,

Taking up your small infinity.

Inside my window, you are everywhere,

Nor could I tell how much such love might weigh,

Even were it salient as the sea.




To know her:-

The genus Hibiscus contains over 200 different flowering plants. Also known as the rose mallow, the genus includes both annual and perennial plants, shrubs and trees. Two of the more popular varieties of the hibiscus include the scarlet rose mallow (Hibiscus coccineus) and rose of Sharon (Hibiscus syriacus). Both plants do well in USDA Zones 5 through 8. The flowers can range in color from white to bright red, and the hibiscus has alternate leaves.


Many varieties of hibiscus are used around the world in herbal medicine, as a food product and as a natural shampoo.
