When my visiting friends Patty and Marti went with me to pick out poinsettias to decorate with for Xmas, Marti at once spotted this hibiscus in a small pot in front of the plant stand. She loved it so I bought it to remind me of her after she left, and planted it where she instructed, in a large planter pot to the side of my kitchen door. I snapped this photo at night, astonished that the petals hadn’t closed up for the night yet. This is the first time I’ve been able to get a good shot of the pistil and stamens of a hibiscus. Because they are so fuzzy, they ordinariiy look out-of-focus. Perhaps the secret is taking the photo in the dark!
