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:

Hibiscus after Rain

Two bouts of heavy rain in the past two days have left my newest hibiscus rather waterlogged. I had to hold its head up to get one of these shots:
