These are photos of the hibiscus bush photographed 24 hours ago and blogged 10 hours ago. The photos below show how they have changed since then. Click on photos to enlarge and read commentary..
This is the bud from 24 hours ago..
Both of the flowers that were emerging 24 hours ago have matured into their full glory and now shriveled up and fallen off the bush.
An emerging flower will no doubt be unfurled tomorrow.
There are now eleven more buds on the bush.
This is the twelfth bud, which has been severed by something. Possibly Leaf cutter ants, although I don’t see evidence of them on the bush.
