This little hibiscus bush right next to my kitchen door is very faithful in providing a bloom at a time. Nice to be greeted to this surprise most days when I go out to feed the cats. It is a Spanish Dancer. Love the bloom and love the name.
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.
The stamens and pistils of the hibiscus are a little flower all their own..or a surreal little tree growing up out of the middle. I had some fun fiddling with the brightness and color balance. Which do you prefer?
