Giant Red Hibiscus

Good morning,

I couldn't pass these blooms without taking a few images with me.
The sun was perfect and the color was perfect. 

I was there at just the right time to get these pictures to bring them home to enjoy and share with you.

Enjoy!

Lois

We have lovely hibiscus here too. So beautiful. See we can even enjoy the same flowers and have all those miles between us.

These hibiscus always look like they ought to be growing in a tropical paradise! They certainly do brighten up a garden this time of year!

Lois, What a beautiful pink hibiscus you have there. Hibiscus is our national flower. I have a pot of red hibiscus in my garden. They are very showy when they blossom. I wonder if I can find this shocking pink from the nursery. Now you got me busy to go find them. hehe..I love your two puppies too, wish I can hold them. XOXO

I certainly will enjoy.

Beautiful! Hibiscus are such dramatic flowers, but the bloom is so fleeting it's not always easy to catch it at just the right time like you did.
