Giant White Hibiscus

Good morning,

These are giant White Hibiscus.  At least they looked white when I took the pictures, but when I downloaded them, I realized they are a very delicate pink.
I would love it if they were in my garden, but they are not.
They are at the edge of someone's garden, right at the sidewalk where I could stand over them to get these images.  So, I brought them home in my camera to share with you.

So very pretty. 

Enjoy,
Lois

Lovely shade, Lois...I was taking photos of hibiscus as well this week, although mine are deep pink.

One of my favorite things about my morning walks is looking at everyone elses flowers. I see so many sizes, shapes and varieties. I keep threatening to bring my camera along with me.

Beautiful!! I planted a red hibiscus this year--in a pot because for some reason they don't like our long cold winters.

Lois, when my sister and I were little we would pick the huge Hibiscus blooms and take off the stems and turn them up-side down and made skirts out of them for our little plastic dolls!! Mom had white and dark pink!...debbie

*confused*

Hibiscus is a bush? Not a lily?

And they are gorgeous! We have been seeing them everywhere here, but never where I can take a picture. I have been meaning to put some in my yard, also.
