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:

Hibiscus: Black and White Sunday and Cee’s Flower of the Day, May 28, 2017

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.

The deer misunderstand and think these are hibiscuits, but this one has survived.  Taken in my friend Allenda’s hillside stone garden in Huntsville, Alabama.

Obelisco y Mas: Cee’s Flower of the Day Challenge, 9/26/15

                                            Obelisco y Mas

Version 2
In Mexico, the hibiscus flower is an obelisco.  These two blooms were picked off the street in San Juan Cosala this morning as I came out of Cafe Saga after the girls’ dance class. I loved the rust-red color, which somehow I have been unable to duplicate in these photos.  I’ve tried decreasing the light to duplicate the color so that is why the photos are a bit dark,but none are the correct color.

I carried the two flowers to my favorite local plant place and although they had a rather large plant that he said had this color blooms, it turns out that the blooms change color three times and are only this color for about a day, finally turning into yellow. The plant I bought has no blooms, but I bought it anyway.  If it isn’t the plant I want, no doubt it will be beautiful anyway as I’ve never met an hibiscus that I didn’t love.  I’ll show you the results!!!
