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!!!
