五福临门

Well, since it is still Chinese New Year period, I decide to post a RED photo... Red is an auspicious colour in Chinese culture. The chinese title translates to "5 happiness arrive at the door". (Ok, I know there are better ways to translate it, but my brain is not working at this hour.)

 

The little red bits with tiny hair at the top of the hibiscus flowers always intrigue me. View it large to see those hairy bits... Simply adorable!

 

I feel quite ashamed of myself. I remeber when I was young, I learn about the parts of the flowers in the science lessons. Now, I totally have no idea how to name the parts! :(
