Newest Addition, Giant Hibiscus: Flower of the Day, Aug. 10, 2016

zooming out and holding my hand up indicates its approximate size, although before it curled up it was at least 4 inches larger across!

Sitting at my desk I just looked up and realized I have a perfect side view angle, even though I am 20 feet away with window glass in between us. Here is the shot I just took:

A girl can never have too many hibiscus plants!

And, surprise of surprises, here is the exact same flower the next day.  You’ll be able to better get an idea of its size: https://judydykstrabrown.com/2016/08/11/another-go-at-the-giant-hibiscus-flower-of-the-day-aug-11-2016/
