Red Hibiscus: Flower of the Day, June 19, 2017

I had a yellow and purple Spanish Dancer hibiscus that I shot yesterday all ready to post. Then I saw this red one, just born today, and changed my mind. Here’s a little closer view:

This wild garden tangle has a certain beauty for me.  Not so for my gardener, who later trimmed it all away.

The prompt was to publish a photo in both color and black and white.  Luckily, I had just, on a whim, tried converting this hibiscus shot to black and white and was shocked to discover that I liked it better devoid of its gorgeous colors.  Here is the site if you’d like to play along: https://bopaula.wordpress.com/2017/05/28/black-white-sunday-after-and-before-y1-05/
I’m also using this for Cee’s Flower of the Day challenge.

My plumeria tree just keeps on blooming this year.  The leaves are lusher than usual as well. I’ll try to enjoy them before the rains come and pick them all!

Plumeria (Frangipani): Flower of the Day, May 12, 2017

My plumeria tree is in full bloom right now.  It is in the lower garden right next to my pool, which is raised about 5 feet above it due to the fact that my house is built on a mountain.  So, the blooms are right at eye level and above.  Perfect to enjoy this lovely stage of growth.

Now, go see Cee’s tulip.  Spectacular!!!
