Happy Birthday Bouquet: Flowers of the Day, Nov 16, 2017

Today I’m sending out a small bouquet of two flowers as two very important people in my life were born on November 16. One is with me today and another has not been with us for 16 years, so the number 16 is especially significant today.

For my reclusive best friend, another reclusive little creature in a beautiful setting.  Happy Birthday, Dux!

And, for my mother Pat, who was a fellow night owl who loved exotics and who would have loved my night view of this hibiscus, I am sure, if she’d lived to see it.

Happy Birthday, Dux and Pat.  I love you both and think of you on your day!!!!

Midnight Hibiscus: Flower of the Day, Oct 5, 2017

I went out at midnight to get something from the car and saw two new hibiscus glowing in the light from beside the door.  Of course, I had to capture them, which brought the cats streaming down from the garage. Tricky getting in and out to get the camera as they are wonderful little escape artists, with two or three distracting me while the other two or three slip into the house. Then I had the camera on the wrong setting, so after spending a half hour trying to work with the photos, it finally occurred to me I could go back out with a flashlight to capture better color. In the end, however, once on the correct setting, I could use available light. Then had to narrow the choices down.  This beauty was the winner.

This beauty was down so low near to the grass that I might have missed it if it were not such a vibrant color.

Hibiscus: Dancing With the Stars

When eight of these Spanish Dancer hibiscus blooms showed up in full regalia on the same day, it was hard to pick a winner.  You’ll see more of their sisters on another day.  Don’t want to slight any of them. Click on any flower to see larger views of them all.

New Kid on the Block: Hibiscus, Flower of the Day, Aug 12, 2017

This is my last hibiscus purchased. It seems to like its spot in the planter formerly planted with cilantro. The cilantro didn’t thrive, so next occupant! This is another very large bloom:
